David Beckham, the owner of Inter Miami plans to bring in two Real Madrid players to his MLS side in the summer.
David Beckham, former Real Madrid player is keen on a double raid on the Spanish giants, involving two of their four-time Champions League winning stars. Beckham and Florentino Perez have had a good relationship ever since the Englishman signed for the Spanish club in 2003, which could help the Englishman land his preferred men into Florida.
He has several plans to bolster his squad in the coming years. MLS is one of the fastest growing leagues in the world, and Beckham is certainly making a vital contribution in that aspect.
However, it seems that Beckham has now set realistic short term goals to start with. He hopes of landing the two Real Madrid stars, Marcelo and Gareth Bale, both of whose contracts expire in 2022. As reported by Diario GOL, Beckham has contacted Perez to find out about the conditions of the transfer.
Gareth Bale is currently on a one-year loan at Spurs and certainly out of the club’s plans, whereas Marcelo has been replaced by Ferland Mendy as the club’s first choice left-back. The Brazilian has made just eight La Liga appearances in the 2020-21 season and is expected to find his way out in the summer.
Florentino Perez would be more than willing to accept an offer for the players, as the Spanish side will not have to bear the remaining amount of their contracts which extends till 2022. However, the fate of Gareth Bale lies in the hands of Spurs, who have an option to extend the Welsh’s loan-term till the summer of 2022.
In this case, the left-wingers’ salary of 16 million euros will be borne by the English side. In the case of Marcelo, the matter is rather straightforward. Both parties will be keen on parting ways with each other in the summer, so Beckham is expected to at least sign one of the two Galacticos.
What’s better for Beckham is the fact that both, Bale and Marcelo, could be let go for free. The Merengues are looking to save up on wages to bring in younger and brighter players and would not be too fussed on nominal transfer fees for the players who are in the final years of their contract and have no future at the club.
