In 2020 David Beckham’s MLS franchise will enter the league in its inaugural season.
Prior to that debut, they expect an influx of English players.
It is no secret. The MLS is the home of many top European footballers of years gone by.
But Beckham and Inter Miami plan on changing that.
In an interview with BBC Sport. One of former England international business partners Jorge Mas.
He believes Beckham will have the personal pulling power to entice top English players to his team.
“We’ve already looked at some English players.”
“We’re having some conversations with some English players and we anticipate Inter Miami will have some English presence.”
This will be a brand new franchise. Their first game is not going to play until March 2020.
They have already signed two players.
According to one of the clubs owners (there are four of them) Jorge Mas:
They are “very close” to appointing a manager.
He went on to say:
“We are trying to get someone who can also commit here for a period of time and leave his fingerprints on our team.”
“It’s someone you’re going to know who has coached before at the highest level and who has played at the highest level.”
He went on to say the new man in charge will “fit an attacking style.”
Miami is one of two new franchises joining the league in 2020. There will be a Nashville franchise too.
The two players on Beckhams books so far are from clubs in Argentina. Striker Julian Carranza from Banfield. Midfielder Matias Pellegrini from Estudiantes.
There have been rumours of ex-Manchester United defender Antonio Valencia and former Chelsea defender Gary Cahill eventually plying their trade in Miami.
“I think you will see if you look at our young signings, we’ve made substantial investments in them.”
“We’re going to couple them with players who have played in Europe who are very well known.”
