Blog In-Depth: David Beckham on loan to AC Milan from MLS L.A. Galaxy

Buzz Manager™ analyzed online discussion surrounding L.A. Galaxy midfielder David Beckham playing for AC Milan on loan during the MLS off-season.

The Buzz ranked 3 out of 10, a topic of low level of interest among sports bloggers.

–     Bloggers in the Positive category thought it was a good move by Beckham. The benefits for Beckham and AC Milan were discussed more highly than any benefits for MLS. Some thought that Beckham playing in Italy in the off-season would be beneficial for MLS in that Beckham would be maintaining a high profile in soccer and could continue to increase buzz when he returns to L.A. for the MLS season.

Bloggers in the Negative category wondered why MLS would risk losing Beckham, arguably its most valuable asset, to Milan permanently given how much MLS has invested in him. Some also pointed out that it reflects poorly on the L.A. Galaxy that some perceived the team to be out of the loop of any negotiations.

–     Bloggers in the Neutral category understood Beckham’s desire to stay fit and compete at a high level during the off-season to try to secure his spot on the England team. However, they were unsure if this move would accomplish that or how it would affect his relationship with the Galaxy.

That’s the first thing that makes this rumour intriguing: why would the Galaxy, and MLS, risk what may become a permanent move to Milan if Beckham thrives there? Why would they release their most valuable asset, even for something as limited as a loan deal? Sports Caddy
