Beckham quit United for Real Madrid in 2003.
The ex-midfielder said he could not even watch Manchester United for two years after his transfer because he was so upset about moving on.
"I knew my dream was over and I had to speak to another team. I couldn't watch United for two years, I was that gutted. It was that difficult to leave."
