Former LA Galaxy star David Beckham could reportedly take up his contractual option of becoming an MLS franchise owner by fronting a new side in Miami.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar played his final game for LA Galaxy on Saturday in the MLS Cup final victory over Houston Dynamo, but is expected to continue his involvement in American soccer.

Beckham had it written into his agreement with LA Galaxy that he would be given the option to the owner of an MLS franchise when he eventually ended his playing days and, according to the Daily Mail, the 37-year-old could head-up a team in Miami.

The MLS already reportedly have plans in place to establish new clubs in Miami and New York, and Beckham is being outlined as the prime candidate to run the Florida outfit.

There is no clear timescale on how long this idea will take before it comes to fruition, while Beckham has the intention of continuing as a player for a while longer.

Beckham is now available having ended his contract with the Galaxy, and has been linked with moves to Paris Saint-Germain, West Ham and Queens Park Rangers.
