Beckham: It's only Milan or United for me

Thursday, February 5, 2009

David Beckham has revealed a number of clubs were after him prior to completing his switch to AC Milan – but only one club could prevent him from joining the Rossoneri.

A number of reports claimed Beckham would be heading back to the Premier League at the end of his career.

But the former England captain has ruled out such a return – unless Manchester United make a bid for him.

He told Sportweek: "I received offers from English teams and two other Italian sides, but I wanted Milan from the first moment I knew they were interested in me.

"Playing with Kaká, Ronaldinho and Pato is just too good to refuse – I think Kaká is the best in the world.

"I am trying to learn Italian and this will take time. I think it's important to learn the language and integrate well.

"But I don't think I will return to the Premier League because the only return I would have liked was Manchester United.

"I enjoyed 15 great years there and it would be the only team I would play for if I returned home.

"Manchester United are not one of the teams who contacted me though."
