thumbnail Hello,

The famous club’s owner is hopeful that his men can do enough to keep the Englishman at San Siro...

Milan supremo Silvio Berlusconi remains hopeful that David Beckham will remain in northern Italy for the foreseeable future. The Diavoli's directors are currently battling against time to ensure the midfielder signs a permanent deal.

Vice-president Adriano Galliani spoke tactfully about Beckham earlier today, revealing talks regarding the Englishman were progressing well. Berlusconi has echoed his bald-headed general, hopeful that a deal will work in Milan's favour.

"I cannot give an answer [on Beckham] because I don't know," Berlusconi told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

"However, I would very much like it if he continued to work with Milan because the way he plays is essential [to the workings of the team]."

The Rossoneri failed to beat Werder Bremen in their UEFA Cup clash on Wednesday night, only mustering a 1-1 draw. Berlusconi was not impressed, however, he is remaining positive.

"I felt a little bad that Milan allowed themselves to be pegged back at the end of the game," added Berlusconi.

"A team like Milan, with so many champions, should be able to prevent the opposition from scoring in the final minutes."
