David Beckham made a return to Manchester United on Thursday as the ex-England captain dropped into the training base of his former club.

The 38-year-old retired at the end of last season after clinching another league title, this time with Paris Saint-Germain, and has been filling his time with various ventures, including pursuing the ownership of a franchise in the MLS.

But Beckham has still been able to find time for the club where he forged his name, and paid a visit to Manchester United's Carrington training base, where he posed for pictures with players and fans alike.

Among those eager for a snap were Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley and Australia rugby league star Paul Gallen, who was at the complex with his compatriots as part of their World Cup training.

It is unclear if Beckham was afforded a meeting with the club's manager David Moyes, after the ex-Real Madrid midfielder gave his public backing to Sir Alex Ferguson's successor.

Beckham says he was 'very happy' that Moyes was given the job at Old Trafford, and has urged fans to continue supporting their new head coach.
