AC Milan chief Leonardo has confirmed they hope to hold onto on-loan LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham.

"We are very happy for David, who has given us a big hand after playing a fantastic game (against Roma). For now, the agreement with the Los Angeles Galaxy provides us two months of the loan, but anything is possible and we'll see how it goes," said Leonardo.

"We thought he had only an hour of play in his legs, he has played almost every 90 minutes. Beckham is in perfect physical condition, thanks to the work done in the camp in Dubai.

"This is an exceptional boy who has been added to our great team."
