AC Milan V.P. says Beckham stay short

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has reiterated David Beckham will only stay at the club for three months before returning to the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Beckham is to join the Italian outfit on loan on January 7 and Rossoneri fans - including the son of club owner Silvio Berlusconi, Pier Silvio - have expressed the hope that the 33-year-old might remain for a longer spell.

But Galliani said: "I want to make clear that the club does not have any future projects for him (Beckham).

"All we know is that he will come to Dubai (winter break) and then he will return to Galaxy in March, besides that nothing else."

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder, who was not included in Fabio Capello's England squad for tonight's international friendly in Germany, is under contract with the LA Galaxy until July 2012.
