Football News

Arsenal fans were granted license to dream big after it emerged that Brooklyn Beckham had rejected interest from both Manchester United and Chelsea to join the Gunners.

The 15-year-old, son of England and all-round football legend David, has reportedly signed a short-term youth contract with Arsene Wenger's side and will play for the Under-16 side at the famous Hale End Academy.

While there is no guarantee that Brooklyn will end up following his father into professional football, there have been plenty of success stories with fathers and sons making it to the upper echelons of professional sport.

Brooklyn will be hard pressed to emulate his father, who garnered 115 caps for England and won titles with four different clubs in four different countries.

However, if he manages to impress Arsenal coaches, he could land himself a professional contract next year.
