David Beckham hinted at the possibility of returning to Manchester United on loan this week but Sir Alex Ferguson has played it down.

“I don’t think so with David at his age,” said Fergie. “I’ve never signed a player as old as that have I? Larsson only came for a month.”

Well, it was actually three months… the same period of time Beckham is looking to move for.
