Beckham Jr trialling with Chelsea

The son of David Beckham is now trialling with Chelsea.

The Daily Mail says Manchester United and Real Madrid legend Beckham's 13-year-old son Brooklyn has had a trial for Chelsea at the club's state-of-the-art training ground.

Beckham was pictured with another Chelsea academy player in the snow at Cobham on Tuesday - sparking speculation that the former England midfielder could make a sensational return to the Premier League.

But it has emerged that he was there to watch his son in a low-key academy game aimed at giving him a taste of English football at junior level.

An insider said: "Brooklyn is like any teenager with an ambition to be a footballer. He has just returned to England and wanted to see how he fared.

"Chelsea are one of the strongest academies in the country. The difference is that he is the son of the former England captain and this will draw attention."
