David Beckham opens talks with Lionel Messi over huge MLS move for Barcelona star
David Beckham’s franchise in MLS, Inter Miami, will enter the league next season and football legend identified Lionel Messi as an important signing.
David Beckham wants Lionel Messi to join his new Major League Soccer (MLS) Inter Miami franchise.
The Florida-based team will enter the MLS in the 2020 season, which begins in March next year.
Despite the problems regarding a site on which to build the permanent stadium of the team, Beckham remains ambitious about his project.
Jorge acts as an advisor to his son, who won the Golden Ball five times and is considered one of the b
est footballers of all time.
Recently it was learned that the Argentine can leave his Barcelona contract for free at the end of each season under his current terms.
The 32-year-old has not yet approached to exercise that privilege and has no plans in place to leave the club where he has spent his entire career.
But the report indicates that the MLS “will surely be a destination at some point” for the striker.
Miami has a large Hispanic community and is closer to the hometown of Messi, Rosario, both seen as a draw for the superstar.
Unlike other professional American leagues, there is no salary cap in the MLS that makes Messi’s income capacity huge in the world’s mall.
Messi currently earns about £ 500,000 per week at Camp Nou, but it is unknown how much Inter Miami could offer.
Beckham is open to sharing Messi with another European club during the low season, from November to February, as is the relationship he shared with AC Milan while he was at LA Galaxy.
Beckham was in London on Saturday watching Tottenham take down Crystal Palace 4-0 from the directors’ box.
Its repairman, McDonough, was behind the launch of Atlanta United five years ago. The franchise is the reigning champions of the MLS Cup.
