David Beckham Identifies First Major Target For New MLS Club

Beckham's Inter Miami Nashville set to pluck talent from MLS rivals

According to The Independent, Manchester City star David Silva will leave the reigning Premier League champions at the end of the season and could be off to join David Beckham's Inter Miami.

Silva has also won two European Championships (2008, 2012) and a World Cup (2010) with Spain.

Silva, 33, has helped lead Man City to four titles during his time in Manchester.

According to English publication The Independent, the co-owner is keen on attracting a Spanish-speaking superstar in order to raise interest from the Hispanic community within the Miami region and is close to agreeing a deal in principal. Silva has twice been named to the Premier League Team of the Season. He has over 140 career goals.

The Expansion Draft provides an opportunity for Miami and Nashville to strengthen their MLS rosters by selecting up to five current players from other MLS teams. Beckham, Mas and sporting director Paul McDonough were in Europe last week on team business, adding fuel to several rumors.

The MLS Expansion Priority Draft will be staged on October 6, the final day of the league┬┤s regular season, with a coin flip to decide whether Miami or Nashville makes the first pick in the MLS Expansion Draft on November 19.

Inter Miami had previously been linked to stars Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez with representatives from the franchise said to be in Barcelona earlier this month.
