David Beckham is ready to target a remarkable move for Cristiano Ronaldo. England legend Beckham will officially announce this month that he is launching a Major League Soccer team in Miami.
Former Manchester United ace Becks, who played in MLS himself with LA Galaxy, believes he can attract huge names to the Florida city — and Ronaldo would certainly fit the bill.
The Real Madrid superstar is now 32, and could be open to one last move around the time the Miami team is fully ready to go within three years.
It would be a huge boost for MLS — and two of the biggest names in world football linking up would be seen as a major development for the sport in the United States.
MLS commissioner Don Garber says there has been a move away from signing ageing stars from European clubs, but they will make exceptions for the right names.
He told Mirror Sport: “I hope we don’t move too far away from recognising that having global icons play in our league can deliver all sorts of value and technology. Not just in terms of ticket sales and commercial benefit, but it inspires young people here.
