London: Former English footballer David Beckham`s hopes of being the new global ambassador for Premier League champions Manchester United reportedly rest with United`s outgoing manager Alex Ferguson.

United`s American owners Glazers consider Beckham as an interesting option to help boost the club`s world-acclaimed recognition.

However, the report said that Beckham`s chances at representing United will be decided by his former manager Ferguson as Beckham`s role will also include his accountability to the Glazers board and Ferguson.

A source at the Glazers has revealed that the firm believes that Beckham`s profile will be a huge benefit to the club.

Beckham will be working alongside Ferguson at Glazers and before Beckham is officially made to represent United, Ferguson will have his voice heard.
