Beckham lined up for emotional Man Utd return

David Beckham is being lined up for an emotional return to Manchester United.

The Sun says his chances of becoming a global ambassador for Manchester United rest with Alex Ferguson.

United's American owners the Glazers hope Becks will help boost the club's already huge profile worldwide.

But he would be working alongside his former boss, so Fergie - who flogged Becks to Real Madrid in 2003 - will be consulted over any decision.

A source said: "The Glazers feel Becks' profile would be a huge benefit to the club."

But if Becks gets this ambassador role he will be answerable to the board - and Sir Alex. "So before the move goes forward Sir Alex will have his say, so that could prove interesting."
