Pop star-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham could soon be bound for Italy - if her soccer superstar husband David Beckham gets his way. The sportsman recently transferred to Italian club AC Milan from Los Angeles Galaxy for a three month stint, leaving his wife to jet between the U.S. and Europe.
But the couple and its three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, could be preparing for another upheaval - after David hinted at his frustration playing in the Major League Soccer table.
He says, "The Americans are doing everything they can to improve the level and reputation of their game. It's a young league, and I think it needs another 10 years to become successful.
"I have to admit that, having played in Europe, sometimes it was frustrating playing in certain games. But every now and then, moving from one state to another, I also enjoyed myself."
And if the star decides to extend his contract with AC Milan, club coach Carlo Ancelotti would be delighted: "He knows that he's appreciated and esteemed, and if he stays we'll be happy."
However, Galaxy bosses won't be letting go of Beckham without a fight.
Tim Leiweke, CEO of the Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns L.A. Galaxy, tells the Los Angeles Times, "David is under contract to the Galaxy, and I had a good, straightforward conversation with him before he left and he loves it in L.A.
"He wants a better Galaxy team; we're going to have a better team and David has no interest in going."
Beckham previously played in Spain for Real Madrid before moving across the Atlantic to Los Angeles in 2007.
