Beckham contacted AC Milan, Galliani says

David Beckham initiated contact to arrange a loan deal to play for AC Milan, club vice president Adriano Galliani said Sunday.
"The Beckham deal started with him. It was the English player who had his lawyers tell us to call, after expressing an intention to play for Milan," Galliani told Italy's state RAI TV.
Galliani announced last week that Milan was close to signing the former England captain on a loan deal from the Los Angeles Galaxy.
The 33-year-old Beckham is keen to play in Europe in the MLS offseason to keep match-fit and available for England coach Fabio Capello.
"Beckham will very probably come our way at the beginning of January and stay with us for two or three months, then go back," Galliani said. "It's not assured that he'll come."
At Milan, Beckham would join a stellar midfield with Andrea Pirlo, Gennaro Gattuso, Clarence Seedorf and Massimo Ambrosini.
"He was a great right winger, but now he can play closer to the center of the field," Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti said after a 1-0 win over Atalanta.
