Has a compromise been struck between Becks and his American employers
AC Milan & Los Angeles Galaxy Agree Loan Deal For David Beckham
Los Angeles Galaxy and England midfielder David Beckham will return to AC Milan for a second loan spell in January, according to Sky Sport Italia.
Speculation has been rife over the midfielder’s future after he claimed other offers were on the table, but the report from the Italian sports news channel is indicative that a deal has already been struck.
They claim directors from both clubs have opened up new dialogue and Beckham will return to Milan at the start of 2010. It is said Beckham has the option to rescind his contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy, but that is unlikely as the Rossoneri cannot offer him a long-term deal, in addition, the player has sponsorship deals to respect with the American outfit.
To strengthen their claim, Sky maintain that vice-president Adriano Galliani allegedly spoke with England coach Fabio Capello today over Beckham, and the former Milan tactician was happy to see his man head back towards the San Siro. (Goal.com)
Such a move was always on the cards following the fall out of David Beckham’s attempts to secure a permanent move away from the MLS which in turn predictably made the England International something of a public enemy number one in the States.
His continuing presence in the England World Cup Qualifying set up is giving the former Man United and Real Madrid man hope he can extend his career and he seems keen to make a move back to AC Milan so perhaps a deal that suits all parties involves the midfielder coming back to Los Angeles for one last stint in 2010.
Thus far his spell in the United States has been something of a disaster but given his financial commitments in the country he can’t so easily leave even if he would like to. A move to Milan is further complicated by the very real possibility of their current manager not being in his position much longer with Leonardo coming in for some stinging criticism following their derby day thrashing at the hands of Inter.
