Beckham not to play in Premier League, opts for A C Milan

Posted By: Staff

Los Angeles (US), July 26 (ANI): England football star David Beckham had said about a week ago that he might consider returning to the Premier League to ensure his selection in the 2010 World Cup squad.

But now according to a report filed by The Mirror, Becks has said that he will be rejoining Italy's A C Milan on loan in December.

Five top-flight clubs - Chelsea, Spurs, Everton, Aston Villa and Portsmouth - were prepared to cut a deal with Becks MLS employees LA Galaxy next season.

But the 34-year-old has decided to reject offers from England and return to Italy.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani said: "The most likely hypothesis is that Beckham plays for us from January until the end of the season. David knows that the doors of Milanello are always open for him."

Milan's current coach Leonardo also made it clear he would welcome the former England captain back. (ANI)
