"We won't increase Beckham offer," insist Milan

AC Milan are not going to meet the Los Angeles Galaxy's asking price for David Beckham, according to vice-president Adriano Galliani.

Galaxy supremo Tim Leiweke firmly declared yesterday that Beckham would return to the United States to continue his career with the Major League Soccer club on March 9 once his short-term loan spell ends with Milan, unless the Italians made a substantial increase to a reported $3m offer that he rejected immediately.

Galliani said: ''Milan has made the offer that it considered fair for an eight-month loan. As Leiweke confirmed, on November 30, David can become a free agent at zero cost.

''I don't intend to make a controversy, in fact, I thank Galaxy for allowing us to have Beckham on loan in these past few months.''

When asked if Milan will raise the offer, Galliani said: ''Absolutely not. I have experience to know the price of a player. And according to the European parameters, there is no sense is spending more.

''In the United States they look at the commercial aspect. Instead in Europe, in the transfers, the technical aspect prevails. The budget that I have at my disposal is already at a maximum between the salaries and the transfers.''

Beckham has been a hit for Milan since joining the club in January and the England midfielder has expressed his desire to remain in Serie A.
