David Beckham to Return to LA Galaxy
Soccer superstar David Beckham will return to Los Angeles at the end of his three-month "loan period" to Italy, despite his stated wish to play for AC Milan.
The Italian side's bid did not have enough zeroes after the one.
Beckham told the Galaxy he wanted to stay with the Italian club, which made an initial offer that was rejected by the Major League Soccer team. Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber set yesterday’s deadline to complete a potential transfer.
"I know David is emotionally invested, but I don't think Milan really was that interested in spending the money we would have had to receive to compensate us for our losses," Leiweke said.
"We need David to honor the contract and come home and let's stop the distraction."
