David Beckham, the world’s highest paid soccer player, will join AC Milan on January 7th for two months while on loan from the LA Galaxy. Beckham reportedly considererd the move on the advice of Fabio Capello, the England coach, who feels the player will benefit from a brief return to one of Europe's most competitive leagues and has stressed he would not consider the player for the friendly against Spain in February, if he remained inactive.
The former England captain will join standouts such as Kaka and Ronaldinho at Milan, and earn about 100,000 euros ($140,000) a month as well as share extra revenue from uniform sales and commercial revenue. AC Milan vice-president and executive director Adriano Galliani admitted that Beckham's commercial value had persuaded Milan to pursue the deal. "Football today is not just about tactics and technical abilities. It's about full stadiums and sponsors."
