David Beckham could stay at Milan until the end of the season and then return to LA Galaxy for the remainder of the MLS campaign, according to reports emanating from Italy.
According to informed speculation, the two clubs are discussing a ‘timeshare’ agreement in which Beckham would honour his commitment to LA Galaxy while satisfying his desire to remain with Milan.
Beckham is already registered to play in Italy until 30th June and can leave LA Galaxy at the end of the current MLS season, in October, as part of a release clause in his contract.
Negotiations are continuing this week and sources in Italy say Milan may struggle to afford Beckham for a transfer fee in excess of £10million, which is another option under negotiation.
Galaxy insist Beckham will return to LA on 9th March but the England international has publicly declared his intention to remain at Milan beyond his current loan agreement.
