David Beckham is heading to Italy.
Major League Soccer confirmed on Thursday afternoon that the Los Angeles Galaxy have reached an agreement with Italian power AC Milan on a short-term loan deal for Beckham.
According to the MLS statement on the loan, the loan is set to begin on January 1. Beckham will return to the Galaxy in time for "training and the start of the 2009 MLS season."
Now that the inevitable has happened, what do you think of the move? Like the idea of Beckham playing for AC Milan before the 2009 MLS season? Think it’s a risky move on the part of MLS and the Los Angeles Galaxy? Do you think the Galaxy had any say in the loan?
