David Beckham wants Inter Milan outcast Mauro Icardi to be one of his marquee signings for Inter Miami.
According to Argentine news agency Télam, the Manchester United legend has reportedly made an offer for the 26-year-old Argentine striker to sign for the club ahead of their official MLS debut in 2020.
Icardi was stripped of the captaincy under former Inter boss Luciano Spalletti and has been frozen out of the squad under new manager Antonio Conte.
Conte is keen to sign United striker Romelu Lukaku in the summer, which would make life more difficult for the Inter ace at the San Siro.
Icardi, who missed out on a place in Argentina's squad for the Copa América, has a deal with Inter that runs until 2021.
But the Argentina international is wanted by Europe's big clubs and could make an exit this summer once his €110m release clause becomes active from 1st July until 15th July.
Despite being linked with Juventus, Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain, Beckham's Inter Miami could be the prime destination for Icardi.
And Icardi's agent and wife, Wanda Nara, did suggest that he could see out his contract before he exits the club next summer.
"Mauro still has one-and-a-half years left on his contract and his intention is to stay at Inter for at least another season," she told TyC Sport in an interview last month.
The ex-Barcelona youth product also committed his future to Inter for at least one more season, following on from an Instagram message he sent out to club supporters last month.
"Because recently the media have reported news that does not reflect my thoughts, I want to inform our fans that I have repeatedly informed Inter about my will to remain with the club," he wrote.
"Hopefully, now there will be no more misunderstandings. I understand the interests of the press in selling fake news, so I would rather clarify things personally.
"I have already expressed the will to stay because Inter is my family.
"Time will reveal who is speaking the truth. Forza Inter, always."
Should Icardi stay in Serie A for one more season before he makes the switch to Inter Miami?
