Gold Coast United boss Miron Bleiberg believes he's set to land Queensland's version of the 'new David Beckham'.

Gold Coast United boss Miron Bleiberg believes he's set to land Queensland's version of the 'new David Beckham'.

Bleiberg is in talks with Richard Geer's agent about a deal with the new A-League franchise, though Queensland Roar are also keen.

"Richard's gone through the development systems at the QAS and AIS and is a great passer of the ball who has a little bit of David Beckham about him," Bleiberg told the Gold Coast Bulletin.

"He's a very polished player who has a really nice fluid style about him.

"I have a philosophy on how football should be played and Richard fits very nicely into that."

Of the Beckham comparisons, a bashful Greer said: "That's a big compliment but I've really done nothing yet. I have a lot to show and prove in my career and really this is just the start. I appreciate the opportunity Miron and Mr Palmer are giving me."
