David Beckham has arranged talks with Lionel Messi's father in a bid to persuade the Barcelona star to join Inter Miami.

The former England international is a co-owner of the Florida-based side who will join MLS in 2020.

Beckham is keen to make at least one marquee signing before Inter Miami's debut season.

And according to The Sun, the ex-LA Galaxy midfielder has sent Paul McDonough to London to hold talks with Messi's dad, Jorge.

Maxifoot report that Beckham is also keen on Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale.
