AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has confirmed the club hope to sign David Beckham on a short-term loan. Beckham is trying to find himself a club in Europe to train with while the MLS season takes a break to maintain his fitness for international duty with England. A number of clubs have been linked with the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star, but Milan are leading the race for Beckham’s signature. “Beckham wants to train and play with Milan,” Galliani told 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 avaliable for Ancelotti 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 would be a dream team.” Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has welcomed the prospect of Beckham joining the Rossoneri. “For me it will be a pleasure, Beckham is a serious athlete, a great professional,” Ancelotti told the club’s official website. “If he is available for four months with us, we will be very happy.” The 33-year-old is still under contract with LA Galaxy but Milan are prepared to sign him until the MLS season resumes.
