David Beckam In AC Milan

After yesterday's signing, Fabia Capello rained praises on Beckham but David Beckham's unlikely return to front-line football was sealed yesterday when he signed a three-month loan deal with AC Milan. The England boss Fabio Capello immediately commended the move that many felt he helped orchestrate in the hope of extending Beckham's England career. With beckham looking to make history as one of the most caped wingers in England, it now seems his dream will come to pass. The 34-year-old Beckham will join the San Siro club in January ostensibly to keep his fitness up during the US close season and will return to Los Angeles Galaxy in March. becks The MLS season finished for the Galaxy this week as they failed to make the play-offs.

While Ac Milan and is flexing muscles with cash, especially with news making the rounds they are offering $35 million for Fabregas, Chelsea does seem to be real deep in the credit crunch thing as it has hit home in the most unlikely place in football - Stamford Bridge. According to the Times, Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has been told that he must sell players before he is allowed to buy any new personnel. "Scolari had expected to be given some of the £28m that was set aside to sign Robinho in the summer before the club were gazumped by Manchester City on transfer deadline day," reports the newspaper, "but, with Chelsea looking to cut costs across all areas of their business, the money will no longer be forthcoming. This is making it look like Solomon Kalou will still move to Arsenal afterall. The Brazilian had shrugged off comments from Peter Kenyon that Chelsea would not be “active” in January, but since the chief executive's remarks at last week's NFL Global Sports Summit the message has been relayed to him internally."

We all know Becks contract with LA Galaxy was running out and already there was rumour he will be moving to Manchester City. That will further reduce his chances of a place in Capello's team. But moving to a team like AC Milan makes that settled.
