David Beckham’s short loan spell in Milan is set to expire in early March, meaning that he was initially expected to return to the LA Galaxy immediately following its completion.
Obviously, both he and the Rossoneri are hoping that this will not have to be the case, as Beckham has managed to rediscover some of his very best form whilst playing in the fashion capital.
According to the latest reports from the Daily Mail though, some fans of his MLS club have expressed their displeasure that the Englishman’s future is more likely to lie in Milan.
These fans of the Galaxy recently produced a few T-shirts and banners against the return of Beckham, as they now consider him a traitor at the club.
Yet at a recent preseason Galaxy game, jerseys with Beckham's name on the back far outnumbered the few hand-drawn T-shirts with his number crossed out. It is clear many would forgive Beckham if he returned to the club.
Still, on team message boards, many Galaxy fans have voiced their disappointment at Beckham's desire to leave their team and have urged club management to hold out for a fair compensation for the English midfielder. There has been much scorn heaped upon Milan's reported opening offer of $3 million for Beckham.
The Italian club has returned to the bargaining table to sweeten the deal.
Milan vice president Adriano Galliani recently declared that “the clubs were reaching an agreement”, and that a deal could quite possibly be finalized by Tuesday.
