Jay-Z, Beyonce, Cruise, Nicholson linked with Beckham's Miami expansion

Recent reports are suggesting that world-renowned artists Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles are being heavily linked with David Beckham's MLS Miami expansion franchise.

The famous husband and wife duo have reportedly said they are interested in buying shares in Beckham's venture while actors Tom Cruise, Will Smith and Jack Nicholson have also been mentioned.

It is believed that the former Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy great has Miami Heat ace LeBron James, as well as LA Lakers stars Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, in tow already.

Beckham and Bolivian billionaire Marcelo Claure are working together to obtain a MLS license for around $25million - a fraction of the normal cost - which was a clause in Beckham's MLS playing contract which he signed in 2007.
