Soccer ace David Beckham and his former SPICE GIRL wife VICTORIA are set to quit America - less than 18 months after they arrived in Los Angeles.
The celebrity couple moved from Europe to California to a rapturous reception in July 2007 as Beckham transferred from Spanish football club Real Madrid to L.A. Galaxy.
Beckham and the singer-turned-designer have often spoken of their love of the U.S. and how their three sons - Brooklyn, nine, Romeo, seven, and three year old Cruz - adore living there.
But reports suggest the family could be heading back to Europe within months amid claims Beckham is set to sign on for Italian soccer side AC Milan in January (09).
The club's vice-president Adriano Galliani has reportedly said: "Beckham wants to train and play with Milan. We want him. He will arrive in January and we will sign him. It's not just a shop-window deal, it's a great deal."
