David Beckham Wants to Stay in Milan

David Beckham Is Ready to Leave the Galaxy Behind

David Beckham was back on the soccer field giving his all to AC Milan yesterday, this time in Scotland. There's been a lot of back and forth about whether or not Becks will extend his stay in Italy, and the star himself recently confirmed that he wants to leave the Galaxy. He said, "I've said that my intention is to stay in Milan, now it's out of my hands. Hopefully, the clubs can come to some agreement . . . I respect the Galaxy but I've expressed my desire now to stay in Milan." A lawyer for the Milan soccer club predicts that Beckham will be heading back to LA come March, so we'll just have to wait out the next few weeks to see if we get Becks back.

boo hoo. I hope not. Milan is one of the best clubs in the world. Silly Galaxy people should have thought about that before giving him on loan

little k i doubt v much its a slam against the USA, America has tons of sports that ur brilliant at but football over there is a slightly new sport still, AC milan are really highly viewed by the football world and as david only has a few more years then he wants to play with the best, and by staying at a high level of play he will get to play for his country in the world cup....England have a lot of players to pick for the best team possible and he wants to be there.

If you're familiar with professional soccer, it's not the slightest bit unusual for a player to leave a team before the contract has run out. You could actually say it's more the rule than the exception, as that way the team the player is leaving gets a nice transfer fee from the new team.

I think what's happening here is that he ultimatley wants to make it in to the England squad, and playing for the Galaxy just isn't good enough to get him back there

He only raised soccer's profile a tiny bit and the US will never appreciate soccer like the rest of the world. It's unprofessional but he's not the only athlete to break a contract. He's obviously enjoying the game again and it'll be a shame for him to be stuck in LA.

Totally ungrateful to the USA.

Eh, not the classiest thing he's ever done. Certainly a strange turn of events for him though considering he was left out of Madrid and the England team when he decided to come to the MLS. Now he's starting for Milan and a/b to break the big 108 caps. In the end though, professional athletes have a pretty short career, so I say let him pursue the dream of WC 2010 playing top notch football at Milan. The Galaxy were horribly managed and stunted by his salary anyway, so hopefully everyone can get something out of this deal.. if not dignity.

Don't let the door hit you in the butt David.

I say, let him stay in Milan. He is happier there as a sportsman. The MLS is no challenge for him.

that one's going to be tricky if he'll get released from his contract here. i don't know how that works, but i'm sure that there will be a lot of bad blood if he does leave. i hope that it all works out for the best.
