Milan take 'step forward' in Beckham talks
Thursday 19 February 2009
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani today hinted the Rossoneri had edged closer to securing the signing of David Beckham.
Beckham is on a short-term loan with Milan from the Los Angeles Galaxy and has expressed his desire to remain with the Serie A giants.
Negotiations between the two clubs have taken place, although the Galaxy are adamant the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star would be returning to the USA unless their asking price was met.
Galliani would not divulge too much information when he spoke although he did confirm to Gazzetta dello Sport: "In the past few hours we have taken steps forward.
"We are more confident now."
Beckham is due to return to Major League Soccer on 9 March unless a deal can be agreed.
