GALAXY: Beckham's wife wants to stay?

Latest report from Britain on David Beckham's will-he-or-won't-he move to, most likely, Paris Saint-Germain says he might stay with the Galaxy after all, all because his wife, Victoria, doesn't want to leave L.A.

Daily Star Sunday, a British tabloid, reported Sunday that the former Posh Spice has told her husband she's not willing to move to Paris.

It also says Galaxy owner AEG is preparing an offer to rival the reported $17.9 million deal PSG has proffered to the English superstar.

The paper cited “a source close to” Victoria Beckham, who has built a career in L.A.'s fashion industry since her husband joined the Galaxy in 2007.

“Victoria doesn't want to move to Paris and has told David she doesn't want to live there,” the newspaper quoted the source. “She told him she found it hard enough adjusting to life in L.A. when they first moved, and she is putting her foot down."

The newspaper, citing an “aide,” claims AEG president Tim Leiweke could offer Beckham a vice presidency in the company.

Beckham, 36, has said all year he would confer with his family after the season before deciding on his future.

Beckham and his teammates -- all but injured forward Chad Barrett and defenders Leonardo and Sean Alvarado -- flew Saturday to Jakarta, Indonesia, where the Galaxy will open its postseason tour Wednesday against an Indonesian all-star team. L.A. plays the Philippines' national team Saturday in Manila, then closes its season Dec. 6 against the Melbourne Victory in Australia.
