AC Milan Low-balls MLS in Beckham Bid
Los Angeles Times, February 16th, 2009 4:15PM

MOST COMMENTED

According to the Los Angeles Times' Grahame Jones, the initial bid put on the table by AC Milan for the services of midfielder David Beckham came in at just $3 million, far lower than the reported $10 million minimum price tag that has been sought by MLS and the Galaxy.

Despite being given a Feb. 13 deadline by AEG chief executive Tim Lieweke, the Italian club has yet to present MLS with a new-and-improved offer, with Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti recently stating, "We've still got 20 days to close the deal. The Galaxy has forced the situation, but there's time before March 9."

Beckham, who came off with a right hamstring injury in the 57th minute of the club's 2-1 derby defeat at the hands of Inter, revealed that it would be "difficult" to return to the LA Galaxy after his time on loan in Italy. "I hope things will go the way I want them to, of course. But if I have to go back, I will be professional, because that's what I have to do."
