Beckham wins battle to stay at AC Milan

David Beckham has won his battle to stay at AC Milan until the end of the campaign and he will return to play for the Italian giants next season.

Under a unique 'timeshare' agreement, the England midfielder will feature for LA Galaxy between July and October before rejoining Milan in November for the rest of the season.The deal follows weeks of negotiations between the two clubs during which Milan bulked at the size of the transfer fee Galaxy were demanding - thought to be around £12m.
It is understood that Beckham is so determined to stay at Milan that he will pay £2million towards the loan fee to Galaxy.the deal is expected to be officially confirmed by the clubs later today or over the weekend.

The move means he will be able to stay at peak physical fitness as he attempts to win a place in the England squad for next summer's World Cup. Fabio Capello has made Beckham a key player in his revamped Three Lions squad and he recently equaled Bobby Moore's record of 108 caps as an outfield player.
