thumbnail Hello,

Milan vice president Adriano Galliani has confirmed that LA Galaxy and England star David Beckham will join the club in January until the end of the season in a deal that could then become permanent...

Beckham will join the Italian side in January while the MLS season takes a break, and he will stay at Milanello until the end of the European season, possibly then making this a permanent move.

"Beckham wants to train and play with Milan," Galliani told Il Corriere Della Sera.

"We want him. He will arrive in January and we will sign him for the rest of the season.

"It's not just a shop window deal, it's a great deal. He will be available for Ancellotti for Serie A and the UEFA Cup.

"Football today is not just about tactics and technical abilities. It's about full stadiums and sponsors. No-one can beat the 65,000 fans we had on Sunday.

"The stadiums will only fill up with superstars like Beckham who has asked Milan for hospitality, not another club.

"With him, Kaka and Ronaldinho, it will be a dream team."

The English midfielder is still under contract with LA Galaxy but it seems as if Galliani has concrete ideas already in place in trying to land Beckham on a permanent deal.
