Aisling O’Connor: Paris move is yet another clever way for Posh to brand it like Beckham

THE Beckhams are set to put roots down for real in Europe as David signs on with Paris Saint-Germain. But what a struggle it will be for poor old Victoria to commute between Paris, London and New York for her fashion business. Not so, is the consensus. In Posh's never-ending pursuit of critical success, the chicest of fashion capitals is looking to be the next rung on her career ladder.
At 37 years old, her iconic footballing husband is approaching his sell-by date on the pitch, but that hasn't put off PSG bosses, who are no doubt walking around with euro signs in their eyes. Beckham's next step has garnered much hype in recent months as his LA Galaxy contract came to an end.
So is David's next move just a cover for a potential exit from New York fashion for Victoria? As we well know, the Beckhams don't do things by halves. According to 'The Guardian', "the veteran" was offered a locker at 12 clubs in South America, South Africa, Russia, China, the Middle East, Australia and North America. So why Paris? Well, because fashion is there, of course.
