David Silva could be the big name David Beckham signs to kick-start Inter Miami’s MLS career.
The Manchester City midfielder will leave the club next summer, which will bring an end to 10 years at the Premier League champions.
The Independent write that the 33-year-old is keen on becoming the Miami’s marquee signing for their inaugural MLS season, noting part owner Beckham, whose played 394 times for Man United, wants to bring in a Spanish-speaking star to generate interest from south Florida’s large Hispanic community.
Silva has won the European Championship twice with Spain in addition to the World Cup in 2010.
The 2020 MLS season begins in March and the new franchise so far have three players – Venezuelan centre-back Christian Makoun and Argentine duo Julián Carranza and Matias Pellegrini.
A host of big names have been linked with joining Beckham in the States, including Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.
Hugo Lloris also hinted he could be interested in a career in America when he said he is unlikely to end his career at Tottenham.
“I still have a few years ahead of me. In any case, I will do everything to make the most of it.
“You also have to know when to say stop at the right time, but I’m not against the idea of discovering something new.
“That could be the United States. I do not know, I always had trouble looking in the medium term. I am more focused on the short term.
“In football, things go so fast. We are here tomorrow and after that we’re elsewhere. You have to be careful.
“I could finish [in MLS], we’ll see.”
Since joining City from Valencia in 2010, Silva has won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and four League Cups.
He was named club captain for his final season at the Etihad where he is a firm favourite of the supporters.
“He knows the club, the league and has big respect,” manager Pep Guardiola said.
