Sources close to the player have told World Soccer Daily that Becks will now team up with the Rossoneri in January to keep his fitness up while he prepares for the new season in April 2009.
Milan chief Adriano Galliani admits that his club could have signed him and he will try again when Beckham arrives at Milanello this season.
"If Beckham had stayed to play in Europe then we would have signed him. He would have been ours after his experience with Real Madrid, but it didn't happen," said Galliani.
Speculation is rife that Milan will make sure the Englishman is signed up quickly, and reports around the penisula suggest a multi-million pound bid as the Italian club tries to creat an international dream team by adding Beckham after the capture of Ronaldinho. Milan don't really have a natural right-winger in their team and Beckham will represent the perfect signing to continue building a squad full of superstars.
The lure of first team top-European football will appeal to 'Golden Balls' and he would relish the chance of trying his game in Serie A after his experiences in Spain for Real Madrid and the USA for Los Angeles Galaxy. I'm bemused as to why Milan should be so keen to buy him. He can deliver killer crosses and take a mean free kick but that's where it ends I'm afraid.
