Kaka: Milan need to sign Beckham permanently

Brazilian star Kaka has urged AC Milan to sign David Beckham permanently. The England midfielder joined the Serie A side on a short term loan deal from MLS club the LA Galaxy, but has now decided that he wants to finish his career in Italy.

Kaka told La Gazzetta dello Sport that Milan need to sign Beckham in order to keep their season on track: "Maybe it was a marketing move at first," Kaka said, "but today the truth is that he is fundamental. He is a player that in the last games was very decisive, with passes and goals."

Reports suggest that Milan will have sealed a deal to keep Becks at the club by Friday. Kaka again underlined the former England captain's growing importance to the team: "I wish Milan can reach a deal to acquire him permanently because he is a player who can help us now and in the next few seasons."
