Beckham still wants Milan move

David Beckham is still hoping his loan stay at AC Milan can be made permanent as the deadline for the deal moves closer.

Beckham equalled Bobby Moore's outfield record of 108 England caps on Wednesday and thinks that his place in the squad for the 2010 World Cup could hinge on whether he plays in Europe or the United States.

The Los Angeles Galaxy player is wishing a last-minute deal can be completed before the Friday deadline set by MLS commissioner Don Garber.

"I am still hopeful. It is something I want to happen, we have to wait and see. We want it sorted out as quick as possible," Beckham said.

Best Interests
LA Galaxy manager Bruce Arena revealed that talks between the two clubs are ongoing but did not say how far negotiations had progressed

If the Californian team do not accept an offer from Milan, Arena is confident Beckham will honour his contract and play in the upcoming MLS season.

"There are a variety of things we've discussed but it's not public information and when Milan give us what they feels is their best offer, we'll examine it and make a decision whether it's in the best interests of our club or not," Arena said.

"If David Beckham returns, he is a good professional and he's going to play, and play well.

"David Beckham understands what a contract means, he will honour his contract, whether it's with LA Galaxy or AC Milan.

"David is a great player, we'd miss him if he leaves, no question about that. However it's a team sport and one player doesn't make a team.

"We'd be thrilled to have him return but if we lose Beckham, we lose him. That's football."

i hope that this is true because it seems as if he is going back to LA Galaxy.. and i think if he goes back them he may not be able to play in the world cup in 2010 because the level of [play is not very good in the states
