Beckham to remain with Galaxy

AC Milan failed to meet a deadline Friday to make an offer to soccer superstar David Beckham, ensuring he will remain with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The deadline was imposed by MLS Commissioner Don Garber. The Los Angeles Times reported it passed without AC Milan taking action.

Garber gave Milan until Friday to make a move after a series of statements made by Beckham during the past few weeks that he would like to play the remainder of his career in Italy.

Beckham has been on loan to AC Milan since the beginning of last month and is due to return to the Galaxy March 8.
