Manchester United ‘want David Beckham’s son Brooklyn Beckham, bookies think transfer is on’

Brooklyn Beckham is reportedly being lined up for a move to Manchester United after his release from Arsenal.

Beckham, 15, was told last week he won’t be getting a professional contract with the Gunners despite being recently promoted to their Under-18 team.

But the Daily Express says the son of United legend David Beckham could be about to move to Old Trafford.

They also quote a source at bookmakers Paddy Power, where Brooklyn has been cut to 2/1 favourites to sign for the Red Devils.

‘It’s unlikely Brooklyn will fall at this first hurdle, despite Arsenal sticking the knife in, but if a call up from United follows you can hardly imagine him being too upset,’ a spokesman confirmed.
