David Beckham could buy stake in Premier League club that isn't Man Utd as perfect opportunity arises

David Beckham could buy a stake in a Premier League club that ISN'T Manchester United.

Beckham, who enjoyed a spell at Old Trafford during his legendary career, was linked with a board level position at Man United when Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim was interested in purchasing the club.

The former England captain was in contact with the Qataris and had reportedly been offered an 'International Ambassador' role if they successfully acquired Man United.

Of course, Sheikh Jassim withdrew from the process, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe closing in on a minority stake in the club, worth a reported £1.3 billion.

But Beckham could return to the table to purchase a minority stake in another Premier League side.

That's because Brentford owner Matthew Benham is open to selling a minority stake in the club.

Beckham's son, Romeo, is currently playing for Brentford B team.

The 48-year-old, who is co-owner of Inter Miami, could look to buy a stake in Brentford with the family connections - and it's likely to be affordable for him.

On Benham being open to selling a minority stake, a club spokesperson said: "Given the recent rise and growth of our club and the changing shareholder landscape within the Premier League, it’s no surprise that there has been interest in investment opportunities at Brentford FC.

"While Matthew Benham’s commitment to the club remains as strong as it ever was, it is only natural, and perhaps even essential, for us to carefully explore what new investment could potentially mean for the future of Brentford FC.

"We must not stand still and we remain absolutely determined to safeguard the long-term future of Brentford FC and to remain competitive in the world’s most challenging and successful league."

As owner, Beckham has led Inter Miami to success as they won the Leagues Cup and secured the blockbuster signing of Lionel Messi.
