Reutersâ€™ Simon Evans posted on Twitter on Tuesday that the former Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, LA Galaxy and Paris Saint-Germain midfielder will meet with billionaire Marcelo Claure in Miami to talk over plans to put forward a proposal for the 21st MLS license.
Evans wrote: â€śFascinating development in Beckham - MLS Miami process - billionaire Marcelo Claure to meet with Beckham this week.
â€śUnderstand that any Beckham meetings will be still of an exploratory nature and no decisions on location for his franchise taken yet.
â€śAlso hearing Beckham may visit some other cities as part of his exploration of possible locations for a new MLS franchise.â€ť
Beckham had a clause in his MLS contract allowing him to buy into a franchise once his playing days were over and it appears he will take the league up on that although the destination of the new club is still a long way off being decided.
