Beckham made his choice mainly for football reasons - the fact PSG are in the Champions League knockout stage and the prospect of winning a league title in a fourth country proved attractive.
PSG have the financial clout too - they are Qatari-owned and have been the highest-spending club in Europe in the past year.
He has recently been training with Arsenal to try to boost his fitness levels ahead of a move.
Wenger said this week: "He told me that he doesn't look at all to be in shape. Beckham is super-ambitious.
"If, in his mind, he wanted to play in the Premier League he would not have gone on holiday. He would have prepared and come in and tried to impress me. He told me he has done nothing at all."
