Beckham misses Manchester United

The 31-year-old has made it clear that he will only join Manchester United if he would return to England.

Becks has been linked with clubs in England, Italy and America, and is out of contract at the end of the season.

The former England skipper is now keen to make peace with Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, in order to make a move to the club possible. Becks was involved in a boot bust-up with Ferguson, before he left the side in 2003.

Beckham told The Sun: “It was an accident. I’ve known Ferguson since I was 12-years-old and we have had one or two problems in that time.

“Maybe he didn’t want me to leave. I don’t think there is any desire on his part for me not to have success. In every way, I hope my luck changes.”

He added: “I have friends — Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos, Michel Salgado — but we don’t go out together enough.

“At Manchester I was there 15 years and every day, every match, we were united, win or lose.

“Every 15 days we went out together to dinner with all the players, including times when Ferguson and all the coaches came.

“In the three years I’ve been here we have done that four times.”
