David Beckham could make his debut Sunday with Paris Saint-Germain when the team faces rival Marseille.
The 37-year-old former England captain has not played since making his last appearance for Los Angeles Galaxy on Dec. 1. He's stepped up his training for the game at Parc des Princes on Sunday.
"Maybe he'll start, because he's fit to start," PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti said at a news conference on Saturday. "If he starts, he'll play in central midfield."
PSG leads second-place Lyon by three points and third-place Marseille by five heading into the matches.
Beckham is looking to win championships in four different countries, after titles with Manchester United, Real Madrid and the LA Galaxy.
He also could play in the French Cup game Wednesday at home against Marseille.
