Report: David Beckham Wants LeBron on MLS Expansion Team
In order to make sure his MLS team gets off to a flying start in Miami, David Beckham is pulling out all the stops according to a report by Page Six’s Richard Johnson, by wooing non other than LeBron James.
David Beckham is trying to recruit Miami Heat star LeBron James as one of his investors in the Major League Soccer team he plans to launch in Miami.
“The two have had several secret meetings in the past few weeks,” a Miami source told me. “LeBron would be to the soccer team what Jay Z was to the Brooklyn Nets.”
Said my source: “Beckham doesn’t need LeBron’s money. He wants him to create excitement and buzz.”
The soccer stud could also use the talents of LeBron’s marketing partner Maverick Carter, whose LRMR firm has signed the biggest star in college football, Johnny Manziel.
I mean it’s its a smart move on Beckham behalf, but I don’t know how effective it would be seeing as LeBron can’t even get the people of Miami to show up to Heat games on time.
