AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani expects the announcement that David Beckham will be joining the club to be made on Friday.
"As far as Milan is concerned David Beckham will be here," Galliani told ANSA news agency. "Within a few hours, Galaxy and us will announce this agreement. We are just waiting for the last few documents."
Earlier in the week, Milan said it expected the Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder to confirm that he will be signing for a second loan spell in January.
Beckham was with Milan on loan from January to May 2009, scoring twice in 18 appearances before returning to Major League Soccer. On returning to the United States, Beckham was met by a hostile reaction from Galaxy fans. But he has since played an important role in helping the side reach the playoffs.
The England midfielder is hoping to use the spell in Italy as a way of preparing for the 2010 World Cup, which would be his fourth.
