Milan keen for Beckham to return

AC Milan are keen to have David Beckham back at the club next year after he returns to the US to complete the MLS season playing for LA Galaxy.

He has been at Milan since January on a timeshare deal, and will go back to America when the Serie A season ends.

"Beckham has been a hugely important acquisition, crucial for us," said Milan general manager Adriano Galliani.

"We hope he returns to us in January but from here until the winter transfer window opens he will be in LA."


The 33-year-old former Manchester United and Real Madrid player is believed to have part-funded his move to Milan himself.

It has certainly worked out well for both club and player, as he has made 13 league appearances so far for Milan and has moved back into contention as a major player for England, who are coached by former Milan coach Fabio Capello.

"Our agreement with the Galaxy is very clear," said Galliani.

"We obtained what we desired, which was to keep David until the end of the season."
