David Beckham? Really?
Prospective new Rovers owner has declared that if he is successful in his takeover bid then one of the first things he would do is aim to bring David Beckham to the club.
In what will be seen as either a brave move or an utterly bonkers one, Syed would look to bring one of his idols to Ewood Park... if the financial demands fit within budget.
'I was 26 when I started following the Premier League. I used to like Blackburn back then and also used to follow Manchester United's fortunes because of David Beckham,' Syed told the Daily Mail.
'If my finances allow and his intentions are positive then I would love to take Beckham.'
Bold or stupid?
Personally I will eat my left arm if we get Beckham...
