Victoria Beckham says son Romeo, 18, is training with dad David's MLS football team in Miami

ASPIRING footballer Romeo Beckham has started training at his famous dad, David's football club in Miami.

Victoria Beckham, 46, revealed Romeo has been training with Inter Miami while the family sets up shop in Florida.

The Beckhams relocated to Miami over Christmas so David could be more hands on with his football team.

It's been the perfect opportunity for Romeo, 18, who despite showing a promising modelling career, wants to become a professional footballer.

"Romeo has been training with the team over here every day, because ultimately that’s what he wants to do," Victoria told Vogue.

All three Beckham boys — Brooklyn, 21, Romeo and Cruz, 15 — signed for the Arsenal training academy in 2014.



Brooklyn went on to play for youth teams at two of his dad’s old clubs, LA Galaxy and Paris Saint-Germain, as well as the Gunners, but was released in 2015.

Romeo, an Arsenal fan, exited a few months later.

David said at the time: “Romeo said he didn’t want to play foot­ball any more. He’s got other passions and I like that.”

Instead Romeo was tipped to be a tennis star, even getting advice from Wimble­don champ Andy Murray. But at the Beckhams’ Cots­wolds pad, where the family spent the first lockdown, Romeo’s £30,000 tennis court now appears to have been replaced by a five-a-side footie pitch.

On Instagram in August, a fan asked: “Do u aim on be­com­ing a football player?” Romeo replied: “Yeah :)”

Last February, he played for Mill­field School Under 18s against Clevedon Town AFC at the non-league Somerset club.

Romeo has trained with the England team attacking coach, Allan Russell, and once said he’d be “Sporty Spice, because I am sporty”.

The Beckhams are living in their £20million apartment in the “most luxurious” Miami skyscraper in the area, complete with its own helipad, luxury pool and gym.

The luxury block, which is 700ft tall, was designed by the late British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, who was behind the 2012 Olympics Aquatic Centre in Stratford, East London.
