Beckham says he wants to end his football career with A C MilanFebruary 5th, 2009 - 1:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb.5 (ANI): England football star David Beckham has confirmed that he hopes to leave Los Angeles Galaxy and end his career in the sport with the Italian club A C Milan.
The England midfielder is currently on loan with Milan till March 9, and the Italian club is hoping to extend it.
“At the moment my lawyers are not talking to the Galaxy but I have expressed my desire to stay at A C Milan now and 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 and do as well as I have,” The Telegraph quoted Beckham, as saying. My intention is to stay there and I hope that the clubs can come to an agreement. I havent spoken to the Galaxy yet but someone has. Ive done all I can. I havent spoken to [England manager Fabio Capello] yet but hes been to see me play at the San Siro and I hope Im involved when he names the squad for the match against Spain on Saturday, Beckham added. However, thats not the main reason for me wanting to stay with Milan. Theyre one of the biggest clubs in the world and playing with these players has been an incredible experience. Its even better than I thought it would be. Ive been welcomed incredibly well and made to feel at home and thats made me want to stay, he said. Its amazing but when I arrived at Milans training camp in Dubai my body fat index was 13.7 per cent, but when I was tested the other day it was down to 8.5 per cent. Everything Im doing at the moment is benefiting me.
Milan wanted to know whether I wanted to stay and they now know the answer. Now, its up to the clubs to sort things out. Once theres an indication that a move is possible the length of the deal will be discussed. The loan agreement I signed is until March so we have got time: it doesnt need to be rushed. Could I finish my career with Milan? Possibly, yes. (ANI)
