The Miami-Dade County has opened negotiations with David Beckham and his group of investors pertaining to the development of a soccer-specific stadium in downtown Miami.
The Miami Herald reports that Beckham's people 'and Mayor Carlos Gimenez's office have set a private meeting to run down the investors' list of up to 30 possible stadium sites, according to the county'.
It is also believed that Beckham, along with Bolivian billionaire Marcelo Claure, favour a site at PortMiami, located in Biscayne Bay.
The report added: 'Beckham and league officials may announce their progress on a new expansion franchise as early as next week, according to sources familiar with the talks'.
