AC Milan have reiterated their intention to have David Beckham back in their squad next year once his season with the Los Angeles Galaxy is over.
General manager Adriano Galliani explained: "Our agreement with the Galaxy is very clear. We obtained what we desired, which was to keep David until the end of the season.
"Beckham has been a hugely important acquisition, crucial for us. We hope that Beckham will return to us in January but from here until the start of the winter transfer window he will definitely be in Los Angeles."
