But it has since emerged on Twitter that the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star was there to watch his eldest son take part in an academy game, with the aim of giving him experience of top-class youth football.
Sid Celery tweeted: "Ok, so I've just picked up that the reason David Beckham was at Cobham today was that son Brooklyn is being trialled for CFC U14s #Phew."
Chelsea youth player Cole Perry Dasilva added: "David Beckham's son Brooklyn is on trial for my team #chelseafc… David Beckham was watching our training session tonight!! Madness."
Beckham Sr is currently without a club, having opted not to renew his contract with LA Galaxy at the end of the MLS season.
