Beckham wants Barcelona legends to play for MLS franchise

Former Manchester United and Real Madrid star David Beckham wants to bring a whole host of Barcelona legends over to the MLS to join his Inter Miami franchise.

Beckham, now 46, founded a new Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise in 2018 under the name Inter Miami. And he has set his sights high and bold.

According to Sport, Beckham wants to bring a number of still playing Barcelona legends to his team, and is targeting the likes of Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba when their contracts expire in 2023 and 2024 respectively.

Alba (middle) is likely to be targeted by Beckham for a switch when his contract expires, along with Messi (left) and Suarez (right). 

Sport also claim he would love to bring the former strike force duo of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez to Miami in order to reunite them following their separation of ways when Suarez left Barcelona.

Inter Miami already enjoy the services of some high-profile players. Such names include French World Cup winner Blaise Matuidi, 2014 finalist Gonzalo Higuain, and former Newcastle and Arsenal stars DeAndre Yedlin and Kieran Gibbs.
