In a less surprising Sunday afternoon rumour the NOTW tries to create some buzz around glamour boy David Beckham by announcing that he would return to the Premier League if AC Milan would not sign him again. Becks has more than once expressed his intention to participate to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, probably as often as Capello has said that he would have to play regularly in the period before the World Cup and play on a high level. As known the MLS has a break in the months before the tournament.
Last season Becks was loaned out to AC Milan for 5 months and he hopes to return to the Italian squad next January. But the rumour mill obviously has started and he is said to be in touch with Spurs and the Council House in case a deal with Milan would fail. In the 2007-2008 season Becks trained 2 months with Arsenal to stay fit and maintain his chances on being selected for the England squad. That was a rather big slap in the face of many a ManUtd fan but how would we feel if now he would opt for the big bucks and sign for several months at Manchester City?
