Manchester United are on the verge of sealing a sensational deal for Beckham - Brooklyn Beckham.

The Premier League champions will have a Beckham on their books for the first time since former England captain David left the club for Real Madrid in 2003.

14-year-old Brooklyn has been on trial with the Red Devils with a view of signing on in the new year.

He had previously been training with Chelsea and QPR in recent weeks, and whilst in America played for the LA Galaxy academy side.

According to Metro, David Beckham was seen dropping off his son at United's Carrington training ground on Thursday where Beckham's former team-mates Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt looked after him.

Despite playing in a trial game for rivals Chelsea, it is believed Brooklyn will emulate his father and sign with United.

Former Madrid, AC Milan and PSG star Beckham played over 250 league games for the Old Trafford club before switching to the Bernabeu.

He has recently come under criticism from former boss Sir Alex Ferguson who criticised his celebrity lifestyle in his recent autobiography.

Some bookmakers are already offering odds of 12-1 that the Beckham son will go on to play for England, and those could be cut further once he confirms his United deal.
