"We're discussing it with his agent," Milan vice president Adriano Galliani said yesterday on the club's Web site. With the MLS season nearly over, Beckham is eager to join another club in Europe so he can remain in shape and keep his place on England's team for World Cup qualifying.

United States defender Oguchi Onyewu joined AC Milan yesterday, and will become one of the few Americans to play in Italy's top league. Milan signed Onyewu to a 3-year deal, after his contract with Standard Liege in Belgium expired. Onyewu, who played four seasons in Belgium and parts of others in France and England (Newcastle United), gained notice with superb performances in the U.S.' run to the Confederations Cup final. Playing in central defense, he helped the Americans end the 15-game winning streak of European champion Spain with a 2-0 win, an upset that put the U.S. in the final against Brazil where it led 2-0 at the half before falling, 3-2.

MARIO BALOTELLI, the gifted-yet-troubled soccer star for AC Milan, has a penchant for doing stupid things. This weekend, he was cited for smoking a cigarette in the bathroom of an Italian train, which was carrying his AC Milan squad to face Fiorentina on Sunday. Club vice president Adriano Galliani said Balotelli will be fined. Balotelli was really ticked off when he heard that the train's ticket collector, who caught him smoking, told Galliani, "You need to pull his ears. He was smoking in the bathroom," Gazzetta dello Sport reported.

It was just the preseason for both of the European clubs, and at times the pace wasn't quite Champions League level, but the goals gave them away: Those were world-class soccer teams last night at Lincoln Financial Field. A perfect 87th-minute free kick by AC Milan scoring star Andriy Shevchenko, buried just inside the right post from 28 yards out, gave the Italian power a 3-2 victory over Chelsea at the Linc, finishing off the American ChampionsWorld Tour for both clubs and saving everybody from a penalty-kick shoot-out.

David Beckham will miss the World Cup and most if not all the MLS season after apparently tearing his left Achilles' tendon yesterday while playing for AC Milan in Italy. His international career for England is all but over. It remains to be seen how much he'll have left for the Los Angeles Galaxy and Major League Soccer. "He will miss the World Cup for sure," a person familiar with the injury told the Associated Press. The person said it was likely the 34-year-old midfielder will play again.

With eight trophies in the last three seasons, a 29-game Spanish league unbeaten streak heading into this weekend, and the world's greatest player in Lionel Messi, it's no stretch to argue that Barcelona is the best soccer team in the world right now. Once you've watched the team play for a while, another thought is hard to escape: Is this the best soccer team - ever? Unsurprisingly, there is no consensus. Unlike with sprinters or skyscrapers, where identifying the fastest or tallest is easy, there is no agreed standard benchmark for determining the greatest soccer team.
