Retirement? From playing, maybe — that doesn't mean David Beckham is DONE with soccer forever!
That's right, we're hearing rumblings that he wants to bring an MLS team to Miami!
He sat courtside Thursday night as the Heat beat the Pacers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals… and was reportedly a guest of Bolivian billionaire Marcelo Claure (above). Why does this matter?
Marcelo is a potential partner with Beckham on the expansion franchise!
David apparently has an option in his contract with the L.A. Galaxy to own a franchise in MLS for a set fee of $25 million. Miami, though, is reportedly just one city under consideration by the Beckham team. Either way, it'll be a few years before another new MLS franchise will sprout!
We wish him all the luck, though — but this could interfere with his restaurant plans!
