England midfielder David Beckham admits his loan move to Milan is 95 per cent complete.
The Los Angeles Galaxy player is due to finish his current season in the MLS and is keen to maintain his fitness, with an 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 to return to the club next January.
"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."
