Brooklyn Beckham Has Chelsea Football Trial
David Beckham's eldest son Brooklyn has had a trial with Chelsea football club.
The 13-year-old played in a game at the Premier League side's training ground in Surrey on Tuesday.
It is understood it was a low-key academy training match aimed at giving him a taste of English junior football.
Sky sources said: "Brooklyn was there as part of a big try-out, with talented kids coming from around the world.
"It was not just one day, there are several days as part of it so no decision has been made."
The sources added: "All three of the boys absolutely love football and they are glad to be back and living in London."
Former England captain David, 37, is currently without a club after leaving Los Angeles Galaxy at the end of the Major League Soccer season.
He and his family are understood to be living in south-west London in a £20m house.
Beckham was pictured on Twitter with a young team player at Chelsea's Cobham training base prompting speculation he was in line for a move to the Blues.
However, it later emerged he was there to watch his son.
Friends and relatives of several Chelsea academy members tweeted that Brooklyn had joined them in a match.
His involvement in the under-14 fixture will stoke speculation he aims to become a professional footballer like his father.
He has been photographed on several occasions practising at training grounds in Los Angeles.
Beckham's top-flight career includes 115 England caps, a record for an outfield player, won during spells at Manchester United, Real Madrid, LA Galaxy and AC Milan.
The east Londoner also played a high-profile role in the capital's winning bid to host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
He has yet to say whether he will continue his own football career and, if so, where.

Yeah right, so out of all the thousand of kids Broklyen comes up, haha, he is known fof his father for god sake, nothing to do with talent, that is know why fair on the kids who could be are future player and have the talent eny child's dream, why set up a academy David when you don't give a care to them kids that my have more talent and ambition then your son, cos agine it's to do with greed,

Know it it's not, it very unfair, nothing to do with jellersy mate, there are thousands of kids in the world that are in the academy's hopeing that one day there dream will come true, they love football, it not jelsasy talk mate, it's called favouritism.
Ok yes he may have had the try out because of who his father is but that doesn't mean to say he is not talented, he may become a top footballer & this is his chance. At least he has been put on the right path and hopefully wont become another wasted celebrity because of who he is like Callum Best & Paris Hilton. And obviously he does care about talented kids futures as footballers otherwise he wouldn't have setup his own academy, name another player that's done anything on the same scale? The guy is a true role model to the sport
So your saying because of who his father is he shouldnt be able to try out with any team because it's favouritism.why shouldnt he be like every other kid that gets to do what they really enjoy and try to get to do what most boys in this country want to do and become a footballer.your comment was just mean spirited.didnt you get picked for a team.is that why you sound so bitter and jealous
I have to day i disagree, surely it's every parents duty to further the potential career of their child? Whether you're someone who gives your child some work experience at your place of business, or pays your child to help out on your market stall every Sunday to help pay for college, or even of you're an international football star giving your child a trial... it's the same thing...
