MLS claims $10m payout for Beckham loan

Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber has revealed they have been paid the full $10m payout they wanted for the extension of David Beckham's loan to AC Milan.

There was much haggling over the deal, which was originally due to expire on March 9 before being renegotiated to run until July 1. Milan were reluctant to pay the asking price - which works out at around £7m - and it was thought a compromise had been reached.

But now Garber has insisted they have been paid $10m.

"We asked for $10 million, we got our $10 million," Garber said. "We don't know where it's coming from, either. There's a lot of different ways it could happen.

"He can not get paid from Milan. Milan could pay us. He could pay them. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter."

It is expected part of the fee will be paid by Milan and rest by Beckham, who was desperate to stay in European football to keep alive his hopes of playing at a fourth World Cup finals in South Africa next year.

Though it is thought Beckham will look to return to Milan permanently in January 2010, Garber would not be drawn on that eventuality.

"I don't know, if he's going to leave after this season, whether we would want him back," Garber added.

Meanwhile, Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has said he would be interested in signing Beckham if the England midfielder became available ahead of next year's World Cup.

''I have not thought about David Beckham, but it would be disrespectful of me to say I would not be interested in him, were he to become available,'' Redknapp said in the Evening Standard. ''David Beckham is a fantastic player, but he is also a terrific role model and a terrific professional. If the opportunity was there to sign him, any club would have to think about it.

''He would still be a terrific player. His delivery of the ball remains exceptional, he is a great trainer and he is a local boy from up the road.'' Beckham will want regular football next season right up to the World Cup now he has won his England place back and is firmly in Fabio Capello's plans.

The Spurs boss added: ''I think he will be part of the squad, for sure.'' Redknapp feels Beckham would also help raise standards of any club he goes to.

''Imagine what the young players at the club could get from someone like that,'' Redknapp added. ''When I signed Teddy Sheringham for Portsmouth in 2003, he was worth his weight in gold.

''He was such a great professional that the other players all looked up to him in training. He did everything right, he was superb around the place, and that is what it is about.

''I have met him only once or twice, but he seems a great lad. To have someone like Beckham at your club - if the opportunity came and someone said he was available, any club would have to think about it.''
