Former Manchester United star, David Beckham, has recently hinted that he would eagerly consider a comeback to the club in an off-field capacity if the Glazer family decides to sell their ownership. The ongoing takeover situation remains clouded in uncertainty, with Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani and Sir Jim Ratcliffe awaiting a final decision.
The lengthy takeover process has reached its ninth month in August, prolonging the indecisiveness that has marked Manchester United’s ownership under the Glazers. Reports suggest a rift within the family, with some siblings inclined to cash in and depart from the club after an 18-year tenure, while Avram and Joel Glazer remain determined to hold on.
Among the potential buyers, Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim and British billionaire Ratcliffe have emerged as the leading candidates, but the possibility of minority investment remains on the table. Meanwhile, David Beckham, who currently serves as the president of Inter Miami, has witnessed business booming in the MLS outfit following Lionel Messi’s sensational arrival.
In a recent interview with The Athletic, Beckham asserted his full focus on Inter Miami during this exciting era with star players like Messi, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba on the team. However, he subtly hinted at the prospect of being involved with Manchester United again, provided that Sheikh Jassim or Ratcliffe assume control at Old Trafford.
While Beckham admitted that he hasn’t been approached for any involvement with Manchester United so far, he conveyed that such an opportunity would mean the world to him. He expressed his hope for a decision to be made in the upcoming weeks or months, leaving the door open for a potential role with the club.
Earlier reports in February indicated that Beckham was approached to endorse specific takeover bids to gain support from the fanbase and the Glazers. If given the chance, he would likely embrace the opportunity to rejoin the club in any capacity under Sheikh Jassim or Ratcliffe’s ownership.
However, the Glazer family’s decision to relinquish their hold on Manchester United remains uncertain at this stage, leaving fans and observers eagerly awaiting the resolution of this complex situation. Until then, Beckham will continue his endeavors with Inter Miami while expressing his unwavering support for his former club as a devoted United fan.
