David Beckham [ Images ] could be set to move to the A-League after Football Federation Australia [ Images ] (FFA) said on Friday they had been approached by the former England [ Images ] captain's management.
According to FFA officials, the approach was made in relation to Beckham playing in the A-League during the current 2012-13 season.
"The approach from David Beckham's people is another sign of how much the A-League has grown in stature on a global basis," the FFA said.
"Beckham is superstar on the world stage and he would be another massive signing for the A-League after the arrivals of Alessandro Del Piero, Emile Heskey and Shinji Ono."
