Arsenal Signs Brooklyn Beckham After Competition From Chelsea And Man-United
David Beckham’s eldest son has been snapped up by Arsenal, who have signed the 15-year-old onto a short-term contract.
Brooklyn was wanted by both Manchester United and Chelsea, but after showing his skills at the Gunners’ training ground, he was quickly snapped up until the end of the season.
There is also the potential for a long-term deal for Brooklyn if he continues to shine on the pitch for the under-16s.
An Arsenal source told the Daily Star: “Brooklyn is talented and he has stood out in all of the training sessions and games he has played.
“He has had other teams sniffing around and it was always going to be a case of when, not if, he was signed up by a big-name club.
“Next summer we may see him sign a big-money deal and with Arsenal.”
Younger brothers Romeo, 12, and Cruz, 9, have already been impressing in the Arsenal youth set-ups.
And England legend David has been seen taking his boys to the Emirates on numerous occasions, after he trained with the Gunners two summers ago to keep fit.
David is said to have a good relationship with manager Arsene Wenger.
