Milan ready to offer 14 m pounds for BecksFebruary 3rd, 2009 - 1:11 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb.3 (ANI): Italian football club A C Milan is ready to make a 14 million pound bid to turn David Beckhams loan from LA Galaxy into a permanent deal.
The Italian giants are already in talks with US companies to try to lure in new sponsors to supplement the players wages.
The Sun quoted Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani, as saying: We want to keep him so badly. Losing him would be appalling, so we will make every effort to have him here for good.
The England midfielder will be offered the same basic salary he gets at Galaxy around 4.5 million pounds a year.
But his overall package with Major League Soccer could prove a giant stumbling block.
When Becks agreed to join the MLS in late 2006, his contract was worth a potential 128 million pounds over five years.
The rise of the dollar against the pound has meant that has now become 175 million pounds. (ANI)
