- AC Milan, David Beckham, Player Loan
Let’s go ahead and start those crazy rumors now that David Beckham will leave Major League Soccer and head back to Europe. According to some reports out of Italy, GoldenBalls will spend part of the winter training with AC Milan.
Its an obvious move for Beckham to head abroad for a little while to stay in shape and stay in contention to be called up for any international games that England has. Plus he will get to train with guys that make good money like he does, something that may feel a bit weird since most of the people he trains with on a daily basis in LA earn in a full year what he typically earns in a full day.
I doubt that this means he will be loaned out to AC Milan this winter. There’s no way the league and Bruce Arena would allow Beckham to play in Italy (or anywhere else for that matter) and run the risk of him getting hurt.
Still, you do have to wonder now that the Galaxy have been eliminated from playoff contention again here. What goes on in LA this winter will surely be more interesting than most cities around the league.
