Beckham in the Milan squad for Sunday

AC Milan play Bologna on Sunday afternoon and once more Beckham will be considered for a starring role. A 20-man strong squad has been named on the Milan website alongside fellow stars: Seedorf, Shevchenko, Ronaldinho, Inzaghi and inevitably Kakà.
This week Beckham has further endeared himself with Milan by visiting Stefano Borgonovo Milan veteran suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis which leaves him communicating via a compter interface. He went with Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti who frequently visits his old colleague and team-mate.
Ancellotti has stressed this week that David is under contract to The Galaxy, but has also left the door open for Beckham to stay at Milan. Clearly Beckham is enjoying his time in Italy, and would be clear to take an option to leave Galaxy after the next MLS season, but will that be soon enough?
Maybe the best compromise might be to see out the three months in Milan, leave them wanting more and join them properly at the start of the next Serie A season if things don't improve at The Galaxy - with the out of sync seasons in the MLS and Europe there are a number of options available. Apparently as well as the opt out in 2009 that Beckham has in his MLS contract, is the option to buy a team at the end of his five years - Perhaps he could buy the Galaxy and sell himself to Milan...
