David Beckham Reportedly Steps Up Miami's Bid To Sign Lionel Messi By Sending Fixer For Talks

And Beckham is desperate for Barcelona star Messi to be a part of it, according to amazing claims.

The Sun report that Beckham's fixer Paul McDonough has been sent to London for talks with Messi's dad Jorge.

McDonough helped make Atlanta United one of the MLS's biggest success stories with record-breaking crowds and a title in 2018.

Messi could leave Barcelona on a free next summer but it's unclear whether the 32-year-old would move to the MLS at this stage of his career.

Beckham was also 32 when when he swapped Spain for America to wind down his playing days.

The ex-Man Utd midfielder left Real Madrid in the summer of 2007 to join LA Galaxy, where he spent five years.

And, according to the report, Beckham could be open to letting Messi leave for a European club on loan for parts of the year like he did at AC Milan in 2009 and 2010.

Messi would be a huge commercial asset for the MLS like Beckham was when he moved to Los Angeles 12 years ago.
