David Beckham wants to tempt Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo to his Miami MLS franchise.

The former Manchester United and England midfielder is believed to be looking into a deal that will take Ronaldo from Real Madrid to Major League Soccer in three years’ time.

An MLS source told The Sun: "Becks understands the need for a big, big name in the team when it gets going.

"And none come bigger than Ronaldo — the world’s greatest player. Ronaldo loves America and all that it offers.

"It’s not a secret he has thought about finishing his career here, about living here — so a deal like this could be perfect for him."

The source claimed that any potential deal would be in 2017 - at the earliest - but that the possibility of signing such a global icon showed Beckham's ambition for his franchise.
