Brooklyn and David Beckham (Getty Images)Something tells us you’ll get a kick out of this story from the Beckham clan.
David and Victoria’s oldest son, Brooklyn, is trying out for London soccer club Chelsea, according to The Associated Press. The 13-year-old reportedly played in a game for boys under 14 years old on Tuesday at the team’s Cobham training center.
Now, was it nepotism or true talent? Something tells us we won’t know for a while, but we’re certainly hoping it’s the latter. What could be better than seeing Brooklyn following in his hot dad’s highly-successful footie-steps? After all, David, 37, was signed by Manchester United when he was only 14 years old.
Sadly, just as Brooklyn is preparing for the beginnings of a soccer career, his father is sorting out his next (and potentially final) chapter in his.
The Beckham clan, which also includes Brooklyn’s younger brothers Romeo, 10, and Cruz, 7, as well as sister Harper Seven, 18 months, recently moved back to London after several years in Los Angeles.
Brooklyn isn’t the only young Beckham bound for glory – Romeo appears in recent ads for Burberry.
