There is a report in the Daily Star by David Woods today saying that Premier League teams are watching as David Beckham has failed to agree terms for a return to AC Milan. The 34-year-old is desperate for top flight football in order to make sure he makes the World Cup next summer and is looking for another loan deal away from LA Galaxy.
Spurs have been linked and the report also suggests a possible interest from Chelsea now former Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti is there.
So why am I on about it?
