David Beckham’s success in Milan will not last much longer. According to perezhilton.com, Beckham will be returning to Los Angeles on March 9.
Following a highly publicized trade from the LA Galaxy to the AC Milan, perezhilton.ca reports that 33-year-old Beckham will be returning to Los Angeles once his loan deal expires in March. Beckham has been performing exceptionally well in Milan, scoring twice in five games for the Italian team. He signed a five-year contract with LA Galaxy in 2007, but had earlier expressed interest in staying on with Milan if they would offer the MLS side substantial money for the trade. The AC Milan was given until Friday to offer the money that Los Angeles specified, but no offer was made.
Tim Leiweke, chief executive of Galaxy owners AEG told the LA times: “We received an offer. It was rejected. We need to end the circus and the zoo.”
