Inter Miami are set to launch a bid to land Edinson Cavani on a free transfer when his contract at Paris Saint-Germain expires.
David Beckham’s new franchise will begin their journey in the MLS in 2020 – and they’re eyeing up a host of ambitious signings.
Becks has already tried and failed to lure Luis Suarez to America, but has convinced two hot prospects from South America to sign up.
Last month, the American team brought in Argentine duo Matias PELLEGRINI AND Julian Carranza, both 19.
Now, reports in Uruguay claim Cavani could be on his way next summer too, with his contract in Paris expiring in June.
A journalist in his home nation, Alvaro Izquierdo, tweeted: “Cavani to MLS!
“The Uruguay forward could be a new face at Inter Miami at the end of his PSG contract next June.
“The top scorer in the history of PSG could bring goals to the new MLS franchise.”
Inter Miami are likely to aim to bring in a host of experience on free transfers – but revealed they would be focusing on youth.
Miami’s sporting director Paul McDonough said: “It’s important for us that we found young, exciting attacking players that are on the upside of their career and have the potential to be really good players in this league.
“We will continue to build and add quality players that are the right fit for our club.
“We started with youth, but we know it’s also important to have veteran players who come from both overseas and within the league to balance out the roster over time.”
Beckham is also thought to have attempted to lure Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to Miami as he aims to get his new team off to a flying start.
