Bolivian outfit Bolivar are hoping to pull off a major coup by signing retired midfielder David Beckham.

The 38-year old former Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan and LA Galaxy and star pulled the pin on his career after winning the French title with Paris Saint-Germain last season but could be momentarily tempted out of retirement.

"Yes, that's true, we want Beckham to play one game for Bolivar," marketing director Salomon Chalan told Globo Esporte.

"Talks are at an early stage between (owner of the company which runs Bolivar) Marcelo Claure and David Beckham, who are friends.

"I don't know yet if it will be a Libertadores game or a friendly one, they are talking and it is a complicated subject."
