Man Utd, LA Galaxy icon Beckham to build brand new stadium in Miami

Reports are suggesting that David Beckham will develop his own 75,000-seat stadium in Miami as he continues to go about plans to bring a MLS franchise to the Florida city.

The Mirror reports that the former Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy midfielder has plans in place, and a site, to build the complex which will also include a hotel and shops.

A source close to Beckham told the UK tabloid: "It's such an exciting project, he has found some land and it's pretty much all ready to go.

"It will be a special stadium, really up to date. Hopefully it will be used for concerts too. David wants it to be a real spectacle in Miami."

Beckham had a clause in his MLS contract allowing him to buy into a franchise - expansion or established - and it is believed that a launch, which includes his long-time business partner Simon Fuller and Bolivian billionaire Marcelo Claure, will occur next week.
