He’s been in L.A. less than two years. But is David Beckham already planning a return to Europe?
The British soccer star confirms that he does hope to move to Italy – for just a “few months!” – later this winter. Now that his Major League Soccer season has ended in the U.S., he’s hoping to spend time playing with AC Milan.
“The MLS season doesn’t run as long as the European season and having played most of my career in Europe, my body has been trained … not to have that amount of time off,” he wrote on his blog. “It also gives me the chance to keep my fitness up and carry that on for when I come back to the Galaxy for the new MLS season [next March].”
Beckham, 33, also took the time to dismiss claims that he’s planning a more permanent move – including rumors that he’s already sunk money into Milan real estate.
“There’s already been plenty of talk that I’ve bought a house out there and that I’m buying a jet, none of which is true,” he insisted.
Beckham, who lives in Beverly Hills with his wife Victoria and their three sons, promised to keep fans in the loop as negotiations continue with Milan. He vowed, “I will let you know when it happens.”
