Milan-Beckham rumours swirl in Italy



David Beckham is on the verge of making a sensational return to Milan, according to media speculation in Italy on Wednesday.

Beckham recently ended his long spell with Major League Soccer (MLS) side Los Angeles Galaxy but has not yet announced his next destination.

Rumours of a return to Milan, where he played on loan on two separate occasions in 2009 and 2010, have, however, gathered pace in recent days.

Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper carried a report on Wednesday which claimed that bookmakers in England had slashed the odds of Beckham returning to the Rossoneri.

The report cited no one from the club but speculated that Beckham would be a welcome addition to Massimiliano Allegri's squad, especially for European fixtures.

Milan sit seventh in Serie A, but are still in the Champions League and will meet Barcelona in the last 16 knockout phase next month.

The seven-time European champions have made no official comment on the reports.
