David Beckham's son, Brooklyn, seems like he is going to follow in his dad's footsteps and become a Manchester United youngster. That is of course if he is offered a place in United's academy.

Manchester United refused to comment on whether Brooklyn has attended a training session at their Aon training complex, claiming that it was for child protection reasons.

David Moyes also refused to comment in his news conference, saying that "we don't talk about young players" before adding that the media had not questioned him over any other young player before.

Brooklyn has already spent time playing for the LA Galaxy youth team when David was there, played for QPR's youth teams and he also trialled for Chelsea juniors at the beginning of the year in January.

It's safe to say he has been around a few clubs, but could Brooklyn find a main stay in northern England?

It certainly is more of a possibility now that David has retired from football, despite announcing that he is to start an MLS franchise in Miami earlier this week.

If Brooklyn were to sign for Manchester United, one could only hope that he comes relatively close to his father's illustrious career. Hopefully it will be a clichéd case of "like father, like son".

To this day I still feel that David Beckham's performance against Greece was one of the most determined and "heart on sleeve" acts we have ever seen on the football pitch, let alone in an England shirt. 

It would be terrific to see Brooklyn (and all other young players) have the attitude and love for the game that his father did.

But lets wait and see. Even if Brooklyn doesn't make it, there are other Beckhams waiting in line, potentially.
