David Beckham has reiterated his desire to secure a permanent move to Milan from LA Galaxy.
The midfielder’s current loan deal expires next week with the player expected to return to America unless the club’s reach agreement on a permanent switch.
Milan are looking to extend Beckham’s loan deal until the end of the season as they have failed to agree a fee with Galaxy to sign him permanently.
Beckham has impressed Milan since his arrival, scoring two goals in 11 games, and he is determined to stay in Italy as he looks to retain his spot in the England squad.
Speaking from Doha, where Milan are set to play a friendly against Al Sadd, Beckham said: “I want to stay … I know negotiations are on and, hopefully, I can continue to play with Milan.
“My experience with Milan has been incredible. I have spent two-and-a-half months with one of the biggest clubs in the world, some of biggest players in world and one of best coaches in the world and so far it has been an incredible experience.
“I have already expressed that I want to stay here, negotiations are still going on and hopefully it will be sorted out in the next few days and I can carry on playing my football in Milan.”
“I want to stay … I know negotiations are on and, hopefully, I can continue to play with Milan,” Beckham said from Doha, where Milan is set to play an exhibition against Al Sadd later Wednesday.
Beckham has a five-year contract with the Galaxy worth $32.5 million. He can opt out of his MLS contract at the end of the season in October.
