- AC Milan, David Beckham, Player Loan
David Beckham says he will only be with AC Milan for a temporary loan. On his website today he confirmed that he is in talks for a loan with the Italian giants but will be back in time to start the 2009 season with the LA Galaxy in Major League Soccer.
“Although nothing is confirmed at present, we can confirm that talks are taking place with Milan with regard to a short-term loan move at the start of next year,” he said in a a brief statement on davidbeckham.com.
In some ways that should put to rest Beckham staying longer than a loan with the club. My bet is he will do what he did last winter with Arsenal and just train to stay in top shape so he can be available for England friendlies and World Cup qualifiers. More than likely the short loan will not mean he will see any playing time but then again it just may if Milan is wanting to drive up some jersey sales.
Sure we don’t really know what to make of this but I still stand firm with my belief that he will not leave MLS and the LA Galaxy until his contract ends in a couple years, at which that time he will more than likely retire from the game.
But that is just my opinion, what do you all think of this madness?
