David Beckham has reportedly offered Luis Suarez a four-year-deal to become the marquee name of his new MLS team, Inter Miami.
It’s claimed Suarez has rejected the deal made by Beckham, whose new team begin life in US football next season.
According to Catalan radio station Club de la Mitjanit, Beckham has made Suarez a big-money offer as he bids to prise the forward away from Barcelona.
The MLS season does not kick off until early 2020 and Beckham has reportedly put together a deal that would see Suarez join next year.
Beckham founded the team in January 2018 and last November the club’s plans to build a new stadium, Miami Freedom Park, near the city’s international airport were approved.
He has also been linked with a move for Suarez’s Barcelona team-mate Sergio Busquets, who admitted in April that playing in MLS ‘really appeals to me’.
Beckham was in Miami this week, where he has had ‘meetings and (hit) certain milestones’ such as having ‘the first look at our academy kids which was a proud moment’.
He added on Instagram: ‘Exciting times ahead for us as owners, our fans and our city’
Suarez is currently 32, which means he would be at least 34 before he arrives in Major League Soccer. Would he be a good signing for MLS at that age?
