Beckham wants cut-price Man Utd return...
Real Madrid ace David Beckham wants a return to Manchester United.
The People (Ok, I know...) says Beckham has told close pals (who??) that he's only truly interested in moving to one place if he leaves the Bernabeu next summer - Old Trafford.
The former United favourite, sold for £25million to Madrid by Sir Alex Ferguson after they won their last Premiership title in May 2003, has even intimated he'd take a massive pay-cut to persuade the Reds boss to take him back.
The move would certainly appeal to the cost-conscious Glazer family, who now own and run United from their base in Florida and who are more keen than ever to maximise their £850m investment.
The Glazers have already sanctioned a major tour to the Far East next summer and they're aware that Beckham is still a big seller in Asia - a continent which remains the fastest-growing market sector in the game.
Think he's dreaming myself but I'm betting a few on here are too. What about the Glazers though?This topic is deleted.
Never gonna happen. The shirt sales wouldn't be that great. Who buys a shirt with a reserve team players name on it? And beckham would soon get pissed off with just making the odd outing in the carling cup> Add to that the media circus that follows him everywhere and his repulsive attention seeking stick insect wife and it's a total non-starter

I don't think it can happen while Fergie is there but would love to be wrong. Having said that i think it would only be good if he came back on certain conditions. 1. That he agreed to drop all personal business interests for the duration of his contract and devote himself to reaching his optimum fitness, fully focussed on football.
2. He accepted that he would not be in the first choice starting 11.
It could work, and it would be great to have the experience of Giggs, Scholes, Nev and Becks around while our young team develops. Can't see it happening though !
