Lionel Messi hints shock move to David Beckham’s new Major League Soccer team… with Usain Bolt also keen

DAVID BECKHAM couldn't ask for much more after announcing the launch of his new Major League Soccer franchise.

Lionel Messi hinted that he could play for his team one day… as did Usain Bolt.

Beckham was celebrating on Monday night after his MLS franchise plans were given the go ahead.

And after the glitzy bash, the Manchester United veteran admitted that "many top players" are queuing to play for him.

Messi, who was one of many superstars to congratulate him, said: "Hi David, first of all congratulations.

"I wanted to wish you luck with this new project.

"And, well, who knows, in a few years give me a call."

The as-yet unnamed team is set to play at a 25,000-seat stadium in the city's Overton neighbourhood.



Beckham intends for his side to be in the league by 2020 and to have the stadium built by 2021.

Eight-time Olympic gold medallist Bolt was also quick to offer his services to Beckham with a video message.

The world's fastest man said: "On a serious note, though, if you need a striker I'm the guy.

"If you need goals, I'm the guy. I got you."

And the Jamaican superstar has been practising his skills with the South African league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

He has always dreamed of playing for Manchester United, and even trained with tehm when Sir Alex Ferguson in charge.
