Travelling takes its toll on Posh

David Beckham has made it clear he sees his future with AC Milan – but for Victoria, Becks’ success in Italy is a mixed blessing.

While David, 33, is locked in talks about a permanent move to the football club, Posh, 34, is feeling the strain of developing her fashon line and commuting from LA.

Victoria’s travelled through time zones and been on planes for so many hours over the past couple of months, she says that she doesn’t know how she stays standing and sometimes thinks she’ll keel over,’ says a source close to the couple. ‘She’s on her knees with exhaustion.

‘At a dinner in Milan recently with David, Victoria lapsed into silence a lot because she was drifting in and out of fatigue.

‘They’ve always been busy, but now they’ve both reached crunch time in their careers at the same time. The next month will be crucial for them as individuals and as a family.’
