United dismiss Beckham return speculation

Published Add your comment

David Beckham will not be joining Manchester United, despite speculation the veteran midfielder could make a sensational return to his former club.

The 36-year-old is currently without a club after his contract with LA Galaxy expired, although he is expected to further extend his stay at the Home Depot Center.

Beckham was in attendance at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday and witnessed United triumph 3-2 over Manchester City in a thrilling FA Cup encounter.

It was a game which saw Paul Scholes make an unexpected return to the fold for United, having lowered the curtain on his illustrious Old Trafford career in May.

This prompted suggestions that Beckham would be the next United legend in line for a comeback and, according to The Telegraph, a six-month contract had been mooted.

However, the same newspaper goes on to report that this suggestion has since been denied by both Manchester United and the representatives of Beckham.

Beckham left United for Real Madrid in 2003, having spent 10 glorious years at Old Trafford under the tutelage of Sir Alex Ferguson.

The former England captain won six league titles, two FA Cups and one Champions League during 399 appearances for the Red Devils.
