Beckham sets sights on Messi to give new US side star quality


  • His contract at Barcelona runs until the end of the 2020-21 season but the Argentine maestro will turn 33 the previous summer and both he and the team may be tempted if Inter Miami submit a huge bid.
  • A source close to Beckham’s club said that no contact has been made with Messi, or any other potential targets, but admitted that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner would be the obvious big-name signing if he could be tempted away.
  • Messi has said in the past that he would like to end his career at the Nou Camp and it is unlikely that he would consider a move to any other top-flight club in Europe when he decides to move on.
  • It had been thought that he might make a sentimental return to club football in Argentina but that prospect appears to have dimmed because of his problems playing for the national team.
