High chances are there that David Beckham might make his return to the Red Devils, Manchester United. Manchester United, the Premier League giants, could be changing hands sooner rather than later after the Glazer family put the team for sale in November 2022, which could see former Old Trafford hero David Beckham back to the team in which he reached stardom back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. The return of David Beckham will only be possible if the Qatari takeover succeeds.
The former Prime Minister of Qatar, Sheikh Jassim, with a net worth of 1 billion dollars, is expected to make a bid for Manchester United at some point and has been in direct contact with Beckham and has urged him to become more vocal in his support for Jassim’s bid to buy the team.
A new role for David Beckham
David Beckham has been offered this new role by Sheikh Jassim which is the role of an International Ambassador in his new potential administration as the new owner of Manchester United. This will come to reality if the bid becomes successful among other potential partnerships with the former England international, who was FIFA ambassador and advocate for the 2022 World Cup celebrated in Qatar.
Besides, David Beckham also signed a 10-year deal with the Qatari government for 175 million dollars last year. This signifies the ties of Beckham with the Middle Eastern nation, which has also sparked controversy, as the accusations of Qatar’s workers and human rights abuses during the construction of the World Cup stadiums mounted throughout the years.
His career as an entrepreneur
Apart from being one of the greatest footballers, David Beckham also greatly flourished in his career as an entrepreneur. He has a net worth of around 514 million dollars and is married to former Spice Girl, Victoria. The former player of the La Liga giants Real Madrid founded the newly added MLS franchise Inter Miami in 2020 and is part of the team’s ownership group alongside José Más and Jorge Más, acting as President and being key to the signing of Lionel Messi a couple of months ago.
Among the other businesses of David Beckham include Guild Esports, a British E-sports organization, founded in 2020; Haig Club, a Scotch whisky brand with which he began to partner in 2014, and House 99, his own male skincare and grooming brand in collaboration with L’Oréal.
The return of David Beckham to Manchester United will indeed be great and if it really happens it will be one of the greatest reunions in football.
