LONDON: British footballer David Beckham has reportedly got his wife Victoria to agree to him moving to Italy to play for AC Milan.

According to, the two had a few terse talks in London discussing the plans. Victoria was concerned about the children’s education and didn’t want them to be uprooted. The children will now stay in the US and finish off the year.

A friend said, “Victoria has told David she loves him and nothing will come between the family. He was thrilled that she has let him pursue his last chance of playing top flight football.”

Beckham, 33, has been taking Italian lessons and also convinced his wife that it will be good for their sons.

“It looks like David has got his way after making a very strong case for his career ending in Milan. David probably only has a few seasons left in him and if he wants to keep his England place and maybe play in another World Cup, he must compete at the top level. Victoria can see that now — and after his career ends they can settle anywhere they want,” added the source.
