[ITALY] Forget for a moment that David Beckham's loan deal between the Galaxy and AC Milan ends March 8 and the European transfer window expires Saturday, making it impossible that he complete the Serie A season unless a deal is reached by Saturday. It took only one goal -- one more than he scored in his first season with the Los Angeles Galaxy -- for talk to speculation in the European to begin that David Beckham could be staying at AC Milan.

(Click here for goal.)

"I feel very good here," Beckham said after scoring on a shot to the near post for the final goal in a 4-1 Serie A win at Bologna on Sunday. "I arrived in a team that wanted me for years and I play for exceptional fans. I'll stay here until March and then we'll see."

It was that final line -- "And then we'll see" -- that was quoted in the Italian press and that raised some eyebrows.

Milan coach Carlo Ancelottiwasn't about add to the speculation of a possible move.

"Our hands are tied because he has a clear contract," said Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti. "We can't do anything to change things. He can definitely do something. He must sort out his contract with the American team. I am a realist. We will take advantage of him for now."

With the win, Milan remained in third place, six points behind leader and defending champion Inter Milan and three points behind Juventus.
