Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admits the Rossoneri's offer for David Beckham was rejected by the Los Angeles Galaxy, but he is still confident of reaching an agreement with the Americans.
The Galaxy revealed early on Saturday morning that an initial offer from the Milanese giants didn't meet their demands. Galliani is not fazed by the rejection though as he believes he can twist the Galaxy's arm and keep hold of Beckham.
"We made an offer to the Galaxy, but they did not accept it," Galliani told Sky Sport Italia.
"However, we are still prepared to talk with them. One will continue to offer and the other will continue to evaluate the proposals.
"We are still a long way off but there is still plenty of time to discuss things."
The Rossoneri are keen on keeping the Englishman following his impressive displays with them so far this term.
However, Milan will have to dig a little deeper if they are to satisfy the transfer fee which has been set by Major League Soccer.
Reports suggest the Italians offered €6 million, but it is believed Galaxy want at least €20m for the star.
