Beckham on Loan to AC Milan

David Beckham is organizing a loan to AC Milan (Italy) for January. Beckham wants the loan to happen so he can be in top form for the England National team. Beckham is eager to remain in the thoughts of England coach Fabio Capello and believes that by returning to Europe he can both remain match fit and prove he is still able to perform at the highest level.

Beckham is contracted to LA Galaxy until 2012, is in talks over a move to the Italian giants in January once the transfer window reopens. The regular MLS season finishes this weekend and with Galaxy out of the running for a place in the play-offs Beckham would be restricted to a promotional tour of New Zealand until the next US domestic campaign.

There had been talk that Beckham would play in Serie A for the remainder of the campaign and then possibly join the club on a permanent basis, but MLS are confident he will be in the white of Galaxy again at the end of March meaning Beckham will be at the San Siro for two to three months.

It would be a similar agreement to the one which saw Henrik Larsson move to Manchester United from Helsingborgs for 10 weeks in January 2007.

"Discussions have taken place between AC Milan and the Los Angeles Galaxy regarding the possibility of a short-term loan agreement that would allow David Beckham to play for AC Milan during the MLS off season,'' MLS commissioner Don Garber said.

"Those discussions are ongoing. David remains an LA Galaxy player and will be here for the start of the 2009 MLS season."
