The Football Association still has to approve the ownership of Beckham before it is declared officially. Gary Neville has stated that Beckham is going to attend the Salford game in the following 2 or 3 weeks.
Salford is 3rd in the 5th tier of English football. The promotion that they get in this season will help them to reach the Football League. This will be for the first time ever.
Beckham has made a statement where he said that this is a special club that has a special group of people. He had joined United when he was a youth player and had played there for eleven seasons for the first team. When he was a part of the team, he was able to win Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup in 1998-99.
