David Beckham has revealed that he is still optimistic about the possibility of signing the duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for Major League Soccer giants Inter Miami. The former Manchester United and England midfielder is a joint owner of the American football club and he has already earlier in the past revealed how much excitement it would bring to him if he is able to convince the two stars, or at least one of both, to sign for the club.
Beckham played alongside Ronaldo at Manchester United and shares a cordial relationship with the Portuguese international but it remains to be seen whether that relationship is strong enough to convince the forward to move to the MLS.
Ronaldo currently plays for Italian Serie A giants Juventus and reportedly joined the Turin club in a bid to help them win a UEFA Champions League title but having not been able to do that yet, he may not be leaving the club anytime soon. However, a deciding factor could lie in the fact that he has faced a couple of criticism in recent times for his inability to hand the prestigious title to the club.
Lionel Messi, on the other hand, is in a more critical situation at Barcelona and is expected by many to leave the Camp Nou at the end of the season. The Argentina international superstar announced that he wanted to leave the Catalan giants at the end of last season but his move away from the club was blocked and he remained put instead.
It is looking more likely that he will eventually end up staying at Barca for a long time due to a change in the club’s presidency and he could remain at Barca for at least one or two more seasons.
