Former Manchester United chief executive David Gill is reportedly expected to be handed a new role at FIFA by recently-elected president Gianni Infantino.
Gill, who is a vice-president of football's world governing body, is likely to be called upon to help solve FIFA's financial troubles.
According to The Guardian, a place on FIFA's finance committee is likely to go to Gill and the 58-year-old could even be made chairman.
The qualified accountant, who left his role at Old Trafford when former manager Sir Alex Ferguson departed in 2013, is already a member of UEFA's finance committee.
It has been reported that FIFA, whose new president Infantino was elected last Friday, are facing a £72m loss this year.
