Becks - Milan deal nearly done

England's Man of the Match reveals Rossoneri deal

England midfielder David Beckham admits his loan move to AC Milan is 95 per cent done.
The Los Angeles Galaxy star is due to finish his current season in the MLS and is keen to keep up his fitness, with one eye on Fabio Capello's World Cup squad for South Africa next year.
Having spent a spell on loan at the San Siro last season, Beckham hopes another successful period in Milan will keep him match sharp.

Speaking after England's final qualification win against Belarus, which ended 3-0 at Wembley, Beckham revealed that the deal with the Rossoneri is almost complete.

"It's close. I've always said I want to go back there if they want me," he said.

"AC have said they wanted me back since I left to go back to the United States and they're saying the same now.

"It's 95% done so I don't know why it wouldn't happen now."

Beckham was awarded Man of the Match after making an impact when brought on as a substitute in the second half against Belarus, where two goals from Peter Crouch and a strike from Shaun Wright-Phillips earned the Three Lions a win.

"This was important for getting over the loss (against Ukraine on Saturday)," he added.
"We needed to end on a high. We didn't deserve to lose last time and we wanted to end the campaign well.

"We all have to prove with every game and every training session that we want to be in the squad for every game. Not just the World Cup, but every qualifier and every time we meet up."
