Fergie urges Beckham to join AC Milan

The LA Galaxy midfielder, who has three years left on his current contract with the MLS side, is currently on loan at the San Siro.

Ferguson said: “If they give him that opportunity it would be silly not to take it.

“He’s had a spell at Galaxy and, fine, they’ve paid him an awful lot of money and they should have some loyalty from him.

“But being selfish, if I was given the chance to go to Milan, I would take it.

“There’s no chance he can do it in two years. This is a golden moment for the lad and I think he’ll take it.

“If they can work out a deal between Milan and Galaxy I think it will happen.”
