However, it would be by far the highest grossing ever seen in the game in America.

Messi has a home in Miami and is known to vacation there regularly. The club is believed to already be identifying players who will fit the striker’s style of play with former Barcelona team-mates Luis Suarez and Cesc Fabregas under consideration.

Inter Miami is managed by Beckham’s former Manchester United teammate Phil Neville, who has just signed a contract extension.

In September, the club received clearance to start construction on a £820m stadium complex, which will include a 25,000-seat stadium, 750-bedroom hotel, pitches and underground car park.
