Beckham to Join AC Milan

East End boy made good, David Beckham, joins Serie A's AC Milan in January according to AC's Vice-President Adriano Galliani.

"The player (Beckham) will train with us and in January he will sign with us until the end of the season.

"He will be available for coach Carlo Ancelotti for both the domestic competition and the UEFA Cup.

"It's not just a marketing operation but a great acquisition."

AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has given the blessing for the former Manchester United star to arrive to the San Siro because Beckham's arrival means there would be more competition for places in the squad.

"For me there are no problems," he said. "The players that will go on the bench will have problems."

Beckham is able to 'transfer' to another club as the MLS season ends on Sunday.

Beckham needs at least to be training, so he can still be part of Englands World Cup plans under coach Fabio Capello.
