AC Milan hope to extend David Beckham’s loan from Los Angeles Galaxy until June, before signing the England midfielder permanently next year.

Beckham, 33, is currently scheduled to return to Galaxy on 9 March.

“Negotiations are getting more intense,” said the Italian club’s vice-president Adriano Galliani.

“I hope to arrange for him to stay here at least until 30 June on loan. Then he could return to Los Angeles and come back in January.”

Beckham, who signed a five-year deal with the Galaxy in January 2007, moved to Milan in January to stay fit during the Major League Soccer off-season and so maintain his bid for an England place.


Milan have been impressed with the former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder, however, and are keen to make the move permanent.

“It’s a complicated path, as we have always known, but I’m trying,” Galliani added on the Serie A side’s TV channel.

Galaxy supremo Tim Leiweke last week described Milan’s recent offer for the player as “ridiculous”.

Beckham has scored two goals in nine Serie A games during his time with Milan.
