David Beckham says he wants to stay at AC Milan rather than return to LA Galaxy when his loan spell expires next month.
Beckham played for the Italian side in a friendly against Rangers on Wednesday and his mere presence in the team saw the Glasgow giants sell live TV rights for the game to 10 countries.
Speaking after the match, Beckham said:
I have expressed my desire to stay. Now it’s just down to Milan and Galaxy to come to an agreement.
I have enjoyed my time here. I knew I would enjoy it but I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I have.
His loan spell is due to end on 9th March.
However his American employers are remaining tight lipped about any possible deal. Spokesman Patrick Donnelly said on Wednesday:
We have no comment to make.
