David Beckham’s Club, Inter Miami Eyes Messi, Ronaldo


Former England captain, David Beckham has hinted on adding big names to the ranks of his MLS franchise, with a couple of all-time greats on his transfer wish list.

The latest on the list are the duo of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Report says that the ex England captain is about to see the Florida-based franchise that he co-owns open a second season of competitive action in the United States.

He has already acquired the likes of World Cup winner Blaise Matuidi and ex-Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, but more signings are being lined up as superstar performers at Barcelona and Juventus register on the radar, goal.com reports.

Beckham, speaking at a fan event ahead of the 2021 MLS pre-season, said when quizzed on interest in Messi and Ronaldo: “Without a doubt, those are the type of players that we aspire to bring to our club.

“I think that the fans would really appreciate that. But, as owners, we want players here that are driven, that want to win, and that’s our priority.

“With Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo, these are players that we feel add to the glitz and the glamour of what the club is.

“Going forward, we also want to bring other players in if we have the opportunity to bring some great names in, you obviously mentioned Leo and Cristiano.

“They’ve been at the top of their game for the last 15 years because of hard work. Sir Alex Ferguson was a master at it.

“He didn’t always bring in the best player in the world. He didn’t always bring in the top player. He bought the right player for the club. And I think that that’s the one thing that I take into our club, is the player has to be right.”
