Becks is set to join the Italian side on loan in January.
“AC Milan is one of the biggest clubs in the world,” said Beckham to the Galaxy’s official website. “It doesn’t mean I’m leaving the States – I’m still very committed to being a Galaxy player. I came to the Galaxy to win trophies and I want to do that.
“One of the reasons I want to train and play in Milan for a few months is the fact that the MLS season doesn’t run as long as the European season and my body is programmed to actually not have that amount of time off.
“I’ve been lucky enough to play with one of the biggest clubs in England and one of the biggest clubs in Spain, now I’m being given the chance to play with one of the biggest clubs in Italy.
“They’ve got Kaka, Ronaldinho, Seedorf and also a player with one of the best records in football, in (Paolo) Maldini.
“To be on the pitch and the training field and get experience with those players is a big honour.”
