PARIS (AP) — David Beckham's sudden arrival at Paris Saint-Germain has been warmly received in France.

Beckham joined the cash-rich club Thursday and announced he would donate his salary to a children's charity.

The 37-year-old former England captain turned down several other offers as he bids to win the championship with a fourth different club in a fourth different country. His globe-trotting career follows success at Manchester United, Real Madrid and the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Daily newspaper Le Parisien headlined with "PSG gives itself a royal gift," while Marseille-based newspaper La Provence said "Popstar David Beckham arrives to fanfare in Paris."
