Beckham backs Manchester United for Premier League title

David Beckham has backed Manchester United to win the Premier League title this year, reclaiming the domestic crown from local rivals Manchester City.

The 37-year-old midfielder - who signed for Paris Saint-Germain on January transfer deadline day - is confident his former club will reign supreme in 2012/13, but he would not be drawn into predicting a winner from United's upcoming Champions League clash against Real Madrid.

After winning six English titles with Sir Alex Ferguson's side, Beckham was unequivocal in his support for his former Old Trafford team-mates domestically, when asked if he thought the Red Devils would finish the season as champions, saying: "Only one answer. Yes!"

However, in Europe he admitted it's a different story, with the two-legged last-16 clash against another of his old clubs, just too close to call.

"Tough. I love both clubs," he explained in a Q&A session with H&M. "I've been a United fan since I was five years old, but am still in love with Real, it will be a great game."

A week after completing his short-term move to Parc des Princes, having signed a five-month contract with PSG until the end of the season, Beckham has spoken of his desire to go on playing for as long as possible.

Briefly turning his attention to after his playing days are over, the former England captain ruled out a move into management, but said that the opportunity to buy a club would be something that appeals to the global star - though it is unlikely to be the one where it all started, modest beginnings at Deepdale.

"Management is not really in my thoughts to be honest," he added. "I have the option to buy a franchise in the MLS, so yes to the MLS, sadly a no to Preston."
