Manchester United and Real Madrid legend David Beckham is being urged to come out of retirement by a business partner.

Bolivian champions Bolivar are trying to tempt Beckham out of retirement, says the Mirror.

Bolivar owner Mauro Claure carries some clout as he is also the man helping to finance Beckham's potential purchase of a Florida-based Major League Soccer franchise in 2015.

Bolivar president Guido Loayza admitted that Becks could make the shock move, "even if it's only for a couple of games in the Copa Libertadores".
