Minnesota United head coach Adrian Heath addressed the possibility of David Beckham’s new franchise Inter Miami attempting to sign both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. This gave rise to speculation that Inter Miami might pursue a deal for the two. David Beckham has addressed those rumours on Wednesday by appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. The former Los Angeles star further fueled the rumours by suggesting that he would try and get both Cristiano and Messi to his club if it is possible.
Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, David Beckham expressed his admiration for multiple Ballon D’Or winners Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. He said that adding the Barcelona captain and Juventus forward to their ranks would mean some business. However, he threw caution to the wind by saying that Inter Miami currently have a great roster.
David Beckham said that Inter Miami have a great roster with a lot of young players. He also added that the squad have a couple of experienced players. He backed the young players by adding that ‘they are just ready to play.’ The former Real Madrid man said that he will continue Sir Alex Ferguson’s principle as Inter Miami owner and will give a fair run to the young players.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are not the only names to be linked with David Beckham’s Inter Miami. The MLS debutants have also been linked to Manchester City's David Silva, Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani and Real Madrid’s Croatian midfielder Luka Modric. Inter Miami have just one designated player spot vacant after the signing of Rodolfo Pizarro and Matias Pellegrini.
