David Beckham To Target Lionel Messi As Inter Miami's Major Signing

David Beckham To Target Lionel Messi As Inter Miami's Major Signing

It's hardly surprising that David Beckham's plans for Inter Miami in the MLS are a talking point every other day. After all, the former Manchester United player could be preparing to build a dynasty with his MLS side in the same vein as other clubs have in Europe's top competitions.

Beckham's proposed transfers for the club won't be overlooked in order to achieve that goal. However, it looks like the former England international has set his eyes on one of, if not, the biggest players in football: Lionel Messi.

According to the Daily Mail, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner could be a major target for Inter Miami ahead of their debut season in 2020.

The Argentine magician's contract runs with Barcelona until the end of the 2020-21 season, but there could be a temptation to sell Messi as he enters the later stages of his career.

You can imagine that it's not going to come cheap for Becks to pull off this sensational transfer, even if Messi will be 33 before his contract expires.

Apparently, though, no contact has been made about a potential transfer at the moment, an anonymous source told the Daily Mail.

"If Beckham wants me in his club, then I'll go," Griezmann told L'Équipe (via Goal). "I want to finish my career in the U.S. I don't know yet if it's going to be in Miami or Los Angeles.

"They are two great cities. I like the mentality and the show culture of the U.S."





Do you think Beckham could tempt Messi with a move away from the Camp Nou?

Let us know in the comments.
