Beckham Living His Dream With MLS Franchise

Former England captain David Beckham said he is “living a dream” as he outlined his plans for a new Miami-based Major League Soccer franchise.
The 38-year-old, who retired as a player last May, wants to recruit some of “the best players” to help make the club “loved by millions”.
He said a world-class stadium would be built to host the franchise, which would be the 22nd in the MLS.
“I want to make this my own team”, said the ex-Manchester United midfielder to bbcsports. No date has been set for when the side would enter the MLS.
Beckham’s option to purchase a franchise is believed to have been part of the financial package he negotiated when he joined LA Galaxy in 2007. He played for the MLS club until 2012.
The former midfielder, who also had spells with Real Madrid, AC Milan and Paris St-Germain, added: “This is an exciting time for myself, my family, my friends and partners, and it is something we are really looking forward to bringing to Miami.
