Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo tipped to join David Beckham’s Inter Miami

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo could be MLS bound sooner rather than later.

That’s according to Minnesota United manager Adrian Heath, who reckons David Beckham’s Inter Miami franchise will shake things up Stateside.

Both Messi and Ronaldo continue to be dominant forces in La Liga and Serie A respectively.

But the superstar duo are also entering the twilight of their careers and will consider their next steps soon.

Heath reckons Beckham’s links with football’s elite means big-name arrivals are inevitable.

“That would be incredible for football in the USA and if anyone has the global profile to make that dream a reality then it has to be David Beckham,” Heath told The Mirror .

“It may not happen just yet, but I can see Ronaldo following in the footsteps of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard playing in the MLS.

“For Ronaldo and Messi, the two obvious destinations if they came to the MLS would be Los Angeles and Miami.

“And, with his links to both players and the plan Beckham and his backers have in place, I can really only see them going to Miami.”

Miami players will don some classy merchandise this season.
