Exclusive: David Beckham plans to play on and reiterates desire to play again for England

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder David Beckham has indicated he plans to play on beyond this season, and has even reiterated his desire to return to the international fold with England.

Speaking exclusively to ITV ahead of PSG's Champions League quarter-final first leg against Barcelona, Beckham said he was in as good shape as ever in his career.

"I'm 38 years old in May and your body changes so you have to adjust certain things, but I've always looked after myself," Beckham told Gabriel Clarke.

"I'm not ready to hang my boots up yet. Somebody just asked whether I would want to play for England again - who wouldn't?

"It's one of the reasons why I've never retired from international football, because if there's ever a chance I could play for my country again I would never turn that down."

Asked whether he could have predicted a year ago that he would be the last Englishman remaining in this season's Champions League, Beckham replied: "No way."

"Obviously I was still playing in LA, I hadn't decided if I was going to finish playing there or not. The interest from Paris came in and it was a no-brainer."

Beckham also cast his mind back to some of his personal Champions League memories, from his debut in the competition against Galatasaray alongside Eric Cantona and Roy Keane to lifting the trophy in Barcelona in 1999.

And he explains why Paris Saint-Germain have the talent to push Barcelona all the way over the two legs of their forthcoming Champions League quarter-final.
