Odds slashed on Brooklyn Beckham playing for Man Utd

Bookmakers have slashed the odds on David Beckham's son Brooklyn playing for Manchester United after the 14-year-old trained with the club yesterday.

Manchester United staff assessed the 14-year-old when he trained at the Carrington training ground on Thursday with a view to offering him a place in the club's academy, the Guardian reported.

Brooklyn is now priced at just 20/1 by Ladbrokes to follow in his father's footsteps.

David Beckham, who retired in May, was part of Manchester United's famous class of '92 and went on to make almost 400 appearances for the club winning six Premier League titles, two FA Cups and the Champions League.
