England and Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder David Beckham is confident he will be back in Serie A with AC Milan next season.
The Galaxy star impressed during a six-month loan spell with the Rossoneri last season and new Milan coach Leonardo has revealed he would welcome him back.
Tottenham and Chelsea, now managed by Carlo Ancelotti, the man who brought Beckham to the San Siro in the first place, are also reportedly interested in the former Manchester United player.
However, Beckham claims there is only one destination for him come the end of the Major League Soccer season.
“I hope to return to play for Milan,” he told the club website. “They have remained in my heart and honestly I am confident I will greet them again in November.
“Leonardo wants me in rossonero immediately? It’s really pleasing to see that I have left good memories.”
Speculation is mounting Beckham could leave the Galaxy sooner than expected as his relationship with the club’s fans continues to grow sour.
The England international was roundly booed in Sunday’s friendly against Milan and had an ugly confrontation with supporters during half-time in what was his first home game since his return from Italy.
However, Galaxy would likely demand close to 13million euros for the 34-year-old.
