Indian businessman Ahsan Ali Syed would like to bring former England captain David Beckham back to the Barclays Premier League if his proposed takeover of Blackburn is successful.Rovers are in discussions with Syed, 36, over a proposed £300million takeover with the Bahrain-based lawyer pledging an initial £80-100million for new players.Syed believes the 35-year-old Beckham, who has not played for an English club since he left Manchester United seven years ago, is a high-profile name to fit his lofty ambitions."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," he told the Daily Mail."If my finances allow and his intentions are positive then I would love to take Beckham."
