Posh hints at move abroad.

Byline: By Pat Hurst

Victoria Beckham yesterday fuelled rumours that husband David is to quit Manchester United and move abroad.

The former Posh Spice, a guest at a Vogue magazine fashion launch in New York, was asked if she was "intending to move to Italy or Spain".

She replied: "I can't possibly answer that..." then gave an emphatic nod of the head and smiled.

The brief interview at last night's fashion event was shown on GMTV.

It will fuel rumours of a rift with her husband's boss Sir Alex Ferguson and a move abroad for the England captain and Manchester United star to join either Real Madrid or Inter Milan. Victoria was attending the opening of a new exhibition, Goddess, sponsored by Gucci, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The admission by Victoria will be a massive blow to Manchester United's millions of fans world-wide.

It will also not please Sir Alex, who flew into a foul-mouthed rage last week when a reporter dared to ask him whether the England captain would be staying or not.

Speculation of a move abroad by Beckham has reached fever pitch in recent weeks.

Super-rich Real Madrid has been tipped to be the favoured destination of the Beckhams since Manchester United's defeat by the European Champions last week.

Victoria is also known to be fond of the shopping in Milan and a move to one of the city's big two football clubs, Inter or AC Milan has also been rumoured.

The Beckhams have also launched a "PR offensive" in the US recently, giving exclusive interviews on prime time chat shows.

A summer switch to Real Madrid would no doubt break British football records, with experts saying the transfer would be worth around pounds 40m.
