'Lionel Messi And Cristiano Ronaldo Could Finish Their Careers At Inter Miami Because Of David Beckham’

MLS coach Adrian Heath has claimed David Beckham's Inter Miami could be the key to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo joining forces.

Beckham's new side are set to have their first professional game on Sunday and are yet to make a marquee signing.

Minnesota United coach Heath believes that the former Manchester United winger would have the power to bring Messi and Ronaldo together.

"That would be incredible for football in the USA and if anyone has the global profile to make that dream a reality then it has to be David Beckham," the former Everton forward told The Mirror.

"It may not happen just yet, but I can see Ronaldo following in the footsteps of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard playing in the MLS.

"For Ronaldo and Messi, the two obvious destinations if they came to the MLS would be Los Angeles and Miami.

"And, with his links to both players and the plan Beckham and his backers have in place, I can really only see them going to Miami."

Heath also believes that Beckham's project will interest many in Europe as he aims to create a huge franchise in America.

"The arrival of Beckham and Miami will help accelerate that switch in mentality."

Messi recently spoke of his famous rivalry with Ronaldo and said it was 'special' while the 35-year-old was playing in Spain.

The Barcelona captain told DAZN:

"It was a special duel and it will remain forever because it lasted many years and it is not easy to maintain certain levels for a long time.

"Plus the teams we played in were also very demanding, both Real Madrid and Barcelona were the two best teams in the world."

"The 32-year-old added: "Competing on an equal footing for so many years, I think it will remain forever.

"The sporting duel between us was very nice on a personal level and I think people had fun too, whether it was from Madrid or from Barca, or even only football fans in general."
