Galliani: Beckham Return Is Done, U.S. Should Pay Onyewu Wages

Milan vice president Adriano Galliani has confirmed that England midfielder David Beckham will join the club in January.

On Wednesday night, Beckham had claimed his move back to Milan was “95 per cent done”, and now Galliani has echoed that statement with one of his own. The chief is delighted to bring the midfielder back for a second stint as he puffs his chest out with pride.

“David Beckham’s return on loan in January is already a done deal,” Galliani told Sky Sport Italia.

The chief also hit out at the US Soccer Association, claiming they will have to pay Oguchi Onyewu’s wages after he suffered a serious knee injury against Costa Rica.

The stopper is expected to be out for at least four months, and Galliani wants compensation.

“It’s a shame that we give players to National teams and they get back injured and we have to pay for this. Now we are evaluating the chance to ask USA Federation for an economic compensation corresponding to the wage the player will have during the months of the injury”
