David Beckham’s son Brooklyn is on trial at Man United

David-Brooklyn-Beckham-playing-soccerDavid Beckham’s son Brooklyn is following in his father’s footsteps by training at Manchester United.

The 14-year-old, the eldest of Beckham’s four children, was at United’s Carrington training ground on Thursday accompanied by his father.

Brooklyn had trials at Chelsea in January and has been training with Queens Park Rangers’ academy, notably figuring alongside Dennis Wise’s son Henry in a friendly for their U14s against Charlton in September.

His younger brother Romeo, 12, has also enjoyed training with Arsenal’s academy.

The Beckham boys have always been in close attendance to their famous father throughout his globetrotting career, turning up at training occasionally alongside illustrious teammates such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva.

Indeed Brooklyn’s football skills have been witnessed before at Old Trafford. He was introduced to the Theatre of Dreams’ crowd at the tender age of just two years old when he accompanied his father on United’s lap of honour following their Premier League title triumph of 2001.

Even then in front of the massed photographers he showed an aptitude for the game by scoring an impromptu goal.

Although his arrival at Carrington training ground is unlikely to result in a more permanent association with the club just yet, United are happy to take a closer look at Brooklyn as he test his skills and tries to carve out a football career of his own.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, a source said: ‘He was there with his dad and took part in a practice session with one of the academy sides.

‘It was a chance for him to impress and if he’s done well then no doubt the club will look at taking him on.’
