David Beckham Wants Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney And Carlo Ancelotti To Lead His New Miami-based MLS Team

David Beckham Wants Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney And Carlo Ancelotti To Lead His New Miami-based MLS Team

DAVID BECKHAM is hoping to persuade Carlo Ancelotti to manage his Miami MLS franchise and wants to sign Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney.

The former England skipper, 42, recently announced his four-year wait to be granted a licence for a team is over in the South Florida city.

And ambitious Beckham clearly wants to make his mark on the US football scene with some spectacular signings.

The Mirror reports that Ancelotti has been sounded out to manage Miami, with former US national manager Bruce Arena and even Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane as back-up options.

Ancelotti is without a club at the present time, with Beckham and the Italian forging a friendship during their time together at PSG.

Arena is also out of work after resigning as US manager in October last year after failing to guide the team to the 2018 World Cup.

Beckham has faced a series of problems in finding a suitable venue.

But the ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder, whose right to a discounted franchise was part of the deal which brought him to play in MLS in 2007, now has a team that is expected to join the league in 2020.

The as-yet unnamed club is set to play at a 25,000-seat stadium in the city’s Overton neighbourhood.
