Manchester United legend David Beckham reportedly wants Steve Bruce to manage his new Miami franchise when they are given the green light to compete in Major League Soccer.
Beckham, a former teammate of Bruce at Old Trafford, hopes to see his newly-formed side join America's top division in the near future.
According to The Sun, the experienced manager - currently in charge of Championship side Aston Villa - is part of the Miami franchise's masterplan.
The report suggests that Bruce is committed to the Villans until the end of the season, but may reconsider his options if he fails to get the club out of the second tier.
Villa are fifth in the Championship table, seven points adrift of the automatic promotion zone.
