QPR manager Neil Warnock has refused to rule out a move for David Beckham, saying: "Anything is possible."
New owner Tony Fernandes signalled his interest in bringing the 36-year-old former Manchester United midfielder to the club on Twitter this week.
And Warnock was quoted in The Daily Telegraph as saying: "About three weeks ago I would not have dreamed to sign Joey Barton so I will never write anything off."
He added: "The chairman Tony Fernandes has got such (an opinion) - why accept the average when you can reach for the top? That is how he is.
"It came out of the blue. I think anything is possible. He is a very astute businessman."
Beckham is in the final year of his Major League Soccer contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy.
