MILAN - David Beckham is enjoying his stay with AC Milan so much that he is considering remaining in Italy after his two-month loan expires.
"Playing here is the dream of every footballer," Beckham said in an interview with Italian daily Corriere della Sera on Wednesday. "But deciding isn't easy. It's a question that takes time."
Beckham's loan from the Los Angeles Galaxy expires on March 8, after which he is due to return to Major League Soccer.
"I'm under contract and I have a lot of respect for the Galaxy. But the chance to play for Milan is something special," said Beckham.
Beckham has started in Milan's last four matches, with the Rossoneri unbeaten with wins over Fiorentina and Bologna, and draws with AS Roma and Genoa. The former United and Real Madrid player scored his first goal for Milan in Sunday's 4-1 victory over Bologna.
Beckham's second came on Wednesday from a free kick 33 minutes into a match against Genoa, with England coach Fabio Capello looking on.
His ultimate goal is to make England's team for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and moving back to Los Angeles may hinder that bid.
Capello was the one who suggested that Milan sign Beckham. - Sapa-AP
