England midfielder David Beckham has confirmed that he will return to Europe in January at the end of his latest campaign in the MLS with the LA Galaxy. The 34-year-old ended last season on loan with AC Milan and has been told by England head coach Fabio Capello that he needs to return to Europe to ensure his selection for next summer's World Cup finals. Beckham told Sky Sports News: "At the moment all I am concentrating on is the MLS. "When you are back with the England squad, of course you concentrate on that and what game is coming up. "But I am going to concentrate on the rest of the MLS season with the Galaxy and then after that finishes, in a few months, I will make plans. But that is news that I already knew. "I'm 95-99 per cent certain that it will happen. It's important that I concentrate on the season with the Galaxy and when that's over, there will be a decision by myself and the club that I will be going to. "But it's important I concentrate over there first." Of a possible return to England, the former Manchester United ace added: "I'm not sure, you never know. "I'm not going to say it will never happen, but I enjoyed my time in Milan and they have expressed that they would like to take me back. "AC Milan are one of the best clubs in the world, but I have quite a few months to decide on that."
