Despite an ultimatum from the LA Galaxy that a deal be complete before last Friday or the negotiations over David Beckham would end, AC Milan isn’t conceding defeat just yet.
Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti insisted, “We have still got 20 days to close the deal. At the moment Beckham is indispensable for Milan. Galaxy has forced the situation, but there is time before March 9.”
Meanwhile, Beckham is reminiscing about his time with the Galaxy, “I’ve always said I don’t regret things and I don’t regret the two seasons at LA. They might have been disappointing in that we haven’t won anything or even made the play-offs — but I’ve met some really good people and there are really good people at the club.”
At this point it seems inevitable that Beckham will become a permanent fixture in Milan. All that’s left to consider is the family.
“It’s going to be tough for the family because when you have children, the main decision is where the kids are going to be happiest and, to be honest, the kids are so settled in America and so settled in their school.
“Me and Victoria will always put our children before anything. That’s the decision that, if something does happen, we will have to look at. Obviously, if we didn’t have the children, we would move straight away but we have enjoyed living in LA and love living there — and the kids are happy there.”
So, Posh and Becks fans, we can still hold on to the hope that the Family Beckham will at least reside in Cali in the off-season. Little consolation, I know, but we’ll take what we can get.
