Beckham interested in staying at Milan

1:44 pm on 29 January 2009

The former England football captain David Beckham has said he is having doubts about returning to the Los Angeles Galaxy after making a strong start to his two-month loan stint at Italian club AC Milan.

Beckham says playing in Italy is every footballer's dream, but it's not easy to decide.

He says it's a matter that requires time, but the possibility to play at Milan is something special.

The 33-year-old midfielder, who scored his first Milan goal in the 4-1 win at Bologna last weekend, joined the club partly in a bid to stay in contention for England selection during the US close season.

But the professional attitude and tactical acumen he has shown have led to calls for him to stay and Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has said the seven-times European champions are willing to pay Galaxy a fee for him.
