Beckham will spend about two months with the team during the Los Angeles Galaxy's off-season.

Both sides said today the deal was still not finalized, but the hope is that Beckam would start January.

He will need to return to the United States for the Galaxy's soccer season in April.

The plan was announced by Adriano Galliani, the AC Milan president, who said: "He will be a club player for a few months and then leave."

"'Our team is ultra competitive and will remain so but Beckham is something different and intriguing," the AC Milan coach said. "For me it would be a pleasure to have Beckham here, he is a serious athlete, a great professional."

Beckham hasn't commented on the proposed move.
