Beckham closing in on Milan deal

Los Angeles Galaxy has revealed that David Beckham's loan move to Milan is almost tied up.

The MLS side wants an end to the ongoing saga surrounding the former Manchester United ace’s future within the next two weeks.

The 34-year-old is desperate to leave the Galaxy on a loan move in January as he prepares for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

“We want to get it done, for him and for us and I don’t want any confusion,” chief executive of Anschutz Entertainment Group (owners of Galaxy) Time Leiweke said.

“It’s the same with Landon (Donovan), there are a lot of rumours whether he is staying or going.

“We’re going to clear that up in the next two weeks because we want the team to be focused.”

“I talk to David a lot and this year a lot more because I wanted to make sure he didn’t get down and that it would work out,” he continued.

“We have a deep appreciation of what he is doing over here with his national team. I wanted him to know that we will support him so we are going to lend him out.”
