Galliani: Beckham return a done deal

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has confirmed that David Beckham's return to Italy in January is already a done deal.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder spent the second half of last season on loan at the San Siro from LA Galaxy, and has been told by England coach Fabio Capello that he must secure another stint in Europe before the World Cup if he is to board the plane to South Africa.

Following Wednesday's final World Cup qualifer against Belarus - in which the 34-year-old came on for the final 32 minutes and was surprisingly named man of the match - Beckham revealed that a return to Milan in January was '95 percent certain'.

However, San Siro supremo Galliani has insisted that the arrangement has already been concluded.

“David Beckham's return on loan in January is already a done deal,” he told Sky Sports Italia.
