AC Milan coach Leonardo would welcome David Beckham back at the San Siro.

The Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder impressed during a six-month loan spell with the Rossoneri last season and speculation is rife that he could return to Milan in January.

Beckham went to visit his former team-mates at their LA training ground ahead of a pre-season friendly between the Galaxy and Milan.

And Leonardo admits there is a possibility the England international will be back at the San Siro in the future.

"David had and has a good rapport with all of us," the Milan boss told the club's official website. "He helped us so much when he wore our shirt.

"Moreover, he is a good person and also the very fact that he came here to see us proves how much he feels for us.

"It was a really nice gesture.

"David is without doubt a very intelligent player and I don't think there is anything strange to say that he could come back into my plans, because he can fit into any system."

No gamble

Meanwhile, Leonardo is confident Luis Fabiano would prove an excellent addition at Milan, should the club secure his services from Sevilla.

Sevilla and Milan have yet to reach an agreement over the striker's valuation, with reports suggesting a deal could be in jeopardy.

Leonardo said: "Luis Fabiano? He would not be a gamble. What is missing for him is to play at a big club. We are talking about a good player.

"If we cannot sign him then we remain as we are. We have a good group and we are in no hurry."
