DAVID BECKHAM is ready to step up his Inter Miami project into another gear.. by signing Lionel Messi.
Golden Balls is passionate about his MLS franchise, and determined to turn them into one of the world's most popular teams.
To do this, the 46-year-old is ready to complete a deal that would see Messi turn out for Miami before the end of his career.
SunSport last night revealed that Inter Miami are ready to sign the Argentine in two years' time, with Barca's No10 to see out his career Stateside.
Messi would then become a Barcelona ambassador after hanging up his boots.
MLS rules dictate that each team may only have three Designated Players – stars that don't apply to the strict salary cap.
Inter Miami will have to be especially careful, having recently fallen foul of the rules.
So Beckham and boss Phil Neville will have to be creative with how they mould their squad around Messi.
But there is still quality to be found.
Miami could move to try and sign US Men's National Team star Ethan Horvath, who is currently playing for Club Brugge in Belgium.

Their back four is already brimming with Premier League experience, with Kieran Gibbs and Ryan Shawcross providing a solid base.
They are joined at the back by leader Leandro Gonzalez Pirez and experienced right-back Kelvin Leerdam.
French World Cup winner Blaise Matuidi could be joined in midfield by Mexican star and MLS stalwart Victor Ulloa.
And Miami's strike force will be filled with attacking talent.
Messi could play on the right flank, with former Celtic starlet Lewis Morgan pinching himself on the opposite wing.
Miami could also try and bring Julian Green to the States, with the former USMNT wonderkid's career having stalled in Germany.
The former Bayerrn ace scored at the 2014 World Cup for Jurgen Klinsmann's side as a teenager – but is currently playing in the second-tier with Greuther Furth. A move to MLS could kickstart his fortunes.
With this talent behind him, Gonzalo Higuain would be bound to score goals by the hatful.
