Beckham open to Man Utd involvement

David Beckham says an ownership change is needed at Manchester United and a future role at the club would "mean the world" to him.

The Inter Miami co-owner and Old Trafford legend wants to see an end to the drawn-out takeover process which has been going on since the Glazer family - who indicated they could sell in November - took offers from groups led by Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani and Sir Jim Ratcliffe to buy United.

When asked in an interview with The Athletic if it was time for the Glazers to leave, he said: "I think so. I think it's purely because the fans want it.

"Once you lose the fans, especially at a club like Manchester United, it's hard to get them back.

"Obviously, they (the Glazers) have achieved a lot, and financially, the fact we're even talking about the numbers of what Manchester United will sell for shows the success they've had. But there needs to be change. We've all seen that, we all know that.
