Milan have reiterated their desire to retain David Beckham next season once his campaign with the Los Angles Galaxy has finished.
The Rossoneri struck a deal with the Galaxy last month to extend the 33-year-old’s short-term loan at the San Siro until the end of the Serie A season.
The two clubs are reported to have agreed a “timeshare” agreement which will see the former England captain play in the MLS until the end of the American season in November before returning to Italy next January.
And general manager Adriano Galliani has told the club’s official website: “Our agreement with the Galaxy is very clear.
“We obtained what we desired, which was to keep David until the end of the season.
“Beckham has been a hugely important acquisition, crucial for us.
“We hope that Beckham will return to us in January but from here until the start of the winter transfer window he will definitely be in Los Angeles.”
Beckham has made 13 league appearances for Carlo Ancelotti’s side since joining on loan in January, and has already expressed his wish to return once the MLS season is over.
