Melbourne - Superstar David Beckham said on Monday he was no closer to deciding his football future as he prepared in Australia for what may be his last match as a Los Angeles Galaxy player.

Beckham, 36, is about to come out of contract with LA Galaxy and is believed to be weighing up a huge offer to play for French club Paris St Germain, or stay in the United States.

But the former England captain said he is unlikely to decide until early in the New Year.

After the Galaxy won the Major League Soccer championship he said he wanted to take some time out with his family before making a decision.

"I wanted to end this season with a championship and we did that, then I wanted some time on this tour to be able to celebrate it," Beckham told reporters ahead of Tuesday's exhibition game against Melbourne Victory.

"I haven't actually started thinking about it yet. Once I get some down time, then I'll start thinking what's going to be best.

"I'm going to spend some time with the family, have a good Christmas."

Beckham scored as LA Galaxy trounced the Philippine national team 6-1 in Manila at the weekend as part of the MLS champions' Asian tour.
