The former Spice Girl will reportedly not be joining David Beckham when he joins AC Milan on loan from his current US team Los Angeles Galaxy.

David – who has three children with Victoria; Brooklyn, nine, Romeo, six, and Cruz, three – is set to sign a short-term contract because the US Major Soccer League season is nearly over and he is desperate to remain fit to play in England’s World Cup qualifying matches.

A source told the Daily Mirror: “David loves spending time in America with Victoria and his kids but he knows how vital it is to play top-flight football in order to maintain his England place.

“He will try to get back to Los Angeles as much as possible but it’s not an easy commute.

“It’s going to be difficult for his family. But his kids are in school there and Victoria is settled working in fashion, so it makes sense for them to stay there.”

Earlier this week, it was reported David and Victoria’s marriage was under increasing pressure because their busy careers are forcing the couple to spend large amounts of time apart.

It is thought David’s new deal could be “the straw which break’s the camel’s back”.

A source said: “Victoria still believes they can make it big in America, but she fears a move back to Europe could kill off their Hollywood future forever.”
