Milan hope for Becks loan extension

AC Milan chief Adriani Galliani has confirmed the club are working hard to extend David Beckham's loan until June.

The Italian giants have been locked in talks for weeks over Beckham, and as Sky Sports confirmed on Monday, they were looking into the prospect of a 'timeshare' agreement.

Galliani has again confirmed Milan's intention to sign Beckham, but revealed their idea was now to extend his loan until June - after which point he will return to Los Angeles Galaxy, and then in January he will join the club for free as he has a clause in his contract which allows him to leave the MLS in November.

"I hope I succeed in sorting it out that he stays until 30th June," Galliani told the club's television station.

"After that he can go back to Los Angeles, before returning to us next January (Beckham will cost nothing come November 30).

"That is what we are trying to do. It is complicated as we always knew it would be, but we are still trying."

Beckham is due to report back to LA in just over a week's time but he remains hopeful he will be allowed to remain with Milan until the end of the season, at least.

No sale
Meanwhile, Galliani has confirmed there are no plans to sell the club.

Reports over the last few weeks have suggested that the San Siro outfit could be sold.

But Gallani has reiterated that the club's current hierarchy are happy.

"I reaffirm. Milan are not for sale. I've spoken with president Silvio Berlusconi and the shareholders are tranquil", he told Italian press.
