Fortune is currently an ambassador for Manchester United, having played for the club from 1999 to 2006, under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson.
The opportunity comes as a result of United restructuring their management and scouting staff under new manager Ole Gunner Solksjaer.
This shift comes as united are looking to add more focus to their former players, and increase their involvement in the club.
Fortune, now 42, has been an assistant coach to Bafana Bafana under Stuart Baxter in recent years, while he has worked with the Man United reserves and Cardiff City’s Under-21s.
Should this be carried out, Fortune will find himself with a coaching job at the English giants.
