MOST COMMENTED

The meeting between AC Milan director Umberto Gandini and AEG boss Tim Lieweke looks to be postponed until next week, according to Italian outlet Sportmediaset. Originally scheduled to be arriving in L.A. on Thursday, Gandini and club representatives now won't be landing in the USA until next week, delaying a possible decision on Beckham's future until Feb. 23 and further underscoring the club's lack of immediacy in resolving the issue.

According to Reuters, an AC Milan source said Wednesday that if they obtain Beckham's services, they'll be offering him an 18-month contract that will have him at the club "until at least June 30, 2010," days before the FIFA World Cup is to be played in South Africa.

Reuters also reports that the latest estimates of a transfer fee for the 33-year-old English international have Milan ready to offer $10 million (U.S.), with Major League Soccer wanting $15 million.
