Dreaming Of David In Red And Black
Times/Guardian , October 31st, 2008 1:30PM



AC Milan Vice President Adriano Galliani has said that David Beckham's New Year fling in the northern Italian fashion capital will be a dream come true for the club. No doubt the city's high-end retailers are celebrating too.

"David's arrival is a dream that becomes a reality," Galliani said. But sadly Milan will have to wake up from that dream after a couple of months because the L.A. Galaxy "want him to remain in Los Angeles and he is happy there. Moreover, he has many advertising contracts." More than you can wave a linesman's flag at, Mr. Galliani.

Beckham's future temporary teammate Ronaldinho doesn't sound like he's dreaming, but at least he's on-message. "I am happy that Beckham is arriving," said the Brazilian, who was once spurned by Real Madrid when the club opted for Beckham's more photogenically aligned teeth instead. "I hope he will help us. He has so much quality." Meanwhile, you may want to see the pictorial reader submissions at The Guardian envisioning how things may shape up for the Number 23 in the city whose unofficial motto reads: Style Over Substance.
