David Beckham is set to have embark on another type of involvement within football, with reports that he is moving into the football agent world.
The former England skipper isn't able to be a licenced agent himself because he is part owner of League Two outfit Salford City but according to John Cross from The Mirror, Beckham has set up 'Footwork Management Limited'.
He is down as a director, as is his friend Dave Gardner and former Freuds and ITV communications boss Nicola Howson.
Gardner is said to be on the Football Association's list of agents, while ex Nottingham Forest player David Johnson is also apparently involved.
Johnson's 18-year old son, Brennan, recently posted a picture of himself with Beckham before the Welshman signed a contract extension at Forest.
Beckham is believed to have his eyes on 17-year old Manchester United hot-shot Mason Greenwood, who has scored two goals in his last two starts - as he looks to build a small but "elite client base".
While the 44-year old won't be acting as an agent directly, his involvement in overseeing the company will no doubt act as a persuasive device for players.
Beckham's MLS franchise Inter Miami, which he set up in 2014, will debut next season. Their signings so far include Argentines Matias Pellegrini and Julian Carranza and Venezuelan defensive midfielder Christian Makoun, while the club are also being linked with ambitious moves for the likes of David Silva and Luis Suarez.
