Brooklyn Beckham swaps QPR and Manchester United for Fulham

United legend's famous son back in west London to train with Cottagers.

After trials at Manchester United and QPR came to nothing, Brooklyn Beckham is reported to have trained with Fulham last week as he looks to follow in his famous father’s footsteps.

According to the Daily Express, Brooklyn, son of the Manchester United legend David, trained with the Cottagers last week before playing in a friendly match on Sunday.

The 14-year-old, the eldest of Beckham’s four children, trained with United last month but was not offered a deal, and was also passed up by Fulham’s west London neighbours QPR.

At Rangers, Brooklyn trained alongside Dennis Wise’s son Henry, with the two playing alongside one another for the Under-14s side in September, while Brooklyn also had trials at Chelsea.

The teenager faces a tough task to emulate his father: David Beckham scored 85 goals in 394 appearances for Manchester during his illustrious United career, winning six Premier League titles, two FA Cups, the Champions League and an Intercontinental Cup.

Brooklyn’s younger brother, Romeo, has also trained with Arsenal’s academy.
