David Beckham's permanent transfer to Milan from La Galaxy is looking more and more likely after Italian sports website sportmediaset and Italian sports TV channel SkySport24 claimed that the two clubs have reached an agreement to complete the move.
The 33-year-old is currently on loan from the Galaxy, and is due to return by March 9 for the start of the
MLS (Major League Soccer) season.
However, 'Golden Balls' has been a huge success in Italy, quickly establishing himself as a key figure in the Rossoneri midfield. This has led Milan to try and make the move permanent, a desire shared by Beckham himself.
It appeared at the weekend that a deal could be dead when the Italian club failed to meet Major League Soccer's Friday deadline with an acceptable offer.
However, Milan have always remained confident, and with a deal with LA Galaxy now seemingly finalised, all that is required to complete the transfer is for Beckham to agree terms with the Rossoneri.
When contacted directly by Goal.com, the MLS were unaware of any deal being in place, and denied that anything was completed regarding Beckham.
In more good news, the injury suffered by the England international in last night's derby defeat to Inter is not serious, and he is expected to play against Werder Bremen in the UEFA Cup in midweek.
