LONDON -- David Beckham says AC Milan and "three or four" other clubs are interested in signing him in January after the Major League Soccer season ends.
Beckham wants to remain in top shape for the World Cup in South Africa at the end of the 2009-10 European season with a similar arrangement to last year, when he spent several months on loan to Milan.
Beckham says "LA Galaxy know that. If it upsets a few people, I can't do anything about it."
But the midfielder says he is still likely to return to the Los Angeles Galaxy after the World Cup.
