Beckham would cut salary to move

David Beckham has agreed to take a salary cut as negotiations over a move from Los Angeles Galaxy to AC Milan go to the wire, BBC Sport understands.

Beckham, 33, is scheduled to return to Galaxy on 9 March, but the England midfielder wants to make permanent his loan move to Milan.

The deadline has put the pressure on all sides to conclude negotiations.

There is understood to be a significant sticking point, and Beckham's return to LA Galaxy remains a possibility.

The Major League Soccer side are sticking to their line that they expect him back on 9 March.

One possible resolution is for Milan to extend the loan until the end of the Italian season.

Beckham would then return to the Galaxy for the remainder of the MLS season, before heading back to Milan in November.

The Englishman, who signed a five-year deal with the Galaxy in January 2007, moved to Milan in January to stay fit during the Major League Soccer off-season and so maintain his bid for an England place.

Milan have been impressed with the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star, however, and are keen to make the move permanent.

Beckham has scored two goals in nine Serie A games during his time with Milan.
