David Beckham is reportedly lining up a mega-money move to make Cristiano Ronaldo his first superstar signing for his new Miami soccer team.
The former LA Galaxy midfielder is believed to be looking into a deal that will take Ronaldo from Real Madrid to Major League Soccer in three years’ time.
An MLS source told The Sun: ‘Becks understands the need for a big, big name in the team when it gets going.
‘And none come bigger than Ronaldo — the world’s greatest player.

‘Ronaldo loves America and all that it offers.
‘It’s not a secret he has thought about finishing his career here, about living here — so a deal like this could be perfect for him.
‘It is a long way off yet — we’re talking 2017 — but it clearly demonstrates the ambition of the Beckham franchise.’
