David Beckham has confirmed his interest in bringing Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to Inter Miami.
Beckham’s club play their first-ever MLS game at the weekend when they take on LAFC in Los Angeles.
The former Manchester United and England star has been linked with brining some of the biggest names in world football to Miami.
And Beckham admits he would like to bring the likes of Ronaldo and Messi across then pond.
He said: “We really believe in the roster we have, the players that we have we’re really happy with but we have also talked about if we have the opportunity to bring in big name players from Europe into our city we will do that.
“Every team in the world would want Messi and Ronaldo in their teams.
“But we always talked about us being different from any other team, which I am sure every other owner says exactly the same thing.
“So that’s what we will try to do and if we have the opportunity to bring big name players in then great we’re lucky we have an ownership group that has that vision and wants to succeed and has that competitiveness where we want the best players.”
Beckham plans to have a hands-on role at the club alongside co-owner Jorge Mas.
The 44-year-old, who also played for Real Madrid , AC Milan and LA Galaxy during his career, insists he’s in it for the long haul.
He added: “When you talk about hands on there is no bigger hands on owners than you are looking at right now.
“Our whole ownership group is hands on. That will continue because we care.
“This is not a vanity project it is a legacy for us, for our families.
“I want to create a legacy that my children can turn around in 20 years and say my dad built this club.”
