The Inter Miami owner also praised the supporters for not giving up on the Red Devils, despite a raft of poor performances, by filling Old Trafford every week.
The former England captain expects changes to be made under incoming manager Erik ten Hag but hopes fellow club legend Ronaldo will stay on for next season.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has another year left on his Old Trafford deal but his future is now uncertain, even though he has been United’s shining light during a disastrous campaign.
Beckham told Sky Sports: “There’s changes to be made and changes that are happening and we’ve seen that.
“It’s a tough end to the season but it is the end of the season. I’m sure a lot of the fans are thankful of that because it’s been a tough one.
“It’s been full of ups and downs, the players have done what they can do best and so has the manager as well.
“But you still turn up at the stadium, I turned up at the stadium a few months back and every seat is filled so the fans still believe, the fans still support. The fans would always turn up for the team because it’s what the United fans do.
“There’s not many other teams that have gone through what they’ve gone through in the last few years and still filling out their stadium. That says a lot about the fans, [it] says a lot about what they believe in and there will be changes.
“Obviously Cristiano is one of the best players over the last 15 years with Lio [Lionel Messi]. To see him stay on, hopefully staying on at United, is important for the fans.
“I think it’s important to him, we all know how much Man Utd means to him and he’s still doing what he does best – scoring goals and creating.
“That’s what Cristiano does and even at his age, to be doing what he’s doing, is really incredible so hopefully it continues and hopefully he stays for another year or two.”
