Zlatan and Beckham became close at PSG.

David Beckham spent a five month spell at Paris Saint-Germain in 2013 during which he won the Ligue 1 title as well as making a connection with Zlatan Ibrahimovic that could prove incredibly valuable in the future.

Beckham now has his own MLS franchise in Miami, and the Swedish striker could very well become his first ever star player for the side. 

According to Italian football correspondent Nicolò Schira, Ibrahimovic wants to finish his career in North America and Beckham - his good friend - is eyeing up a move for when his team joins the league in 2017.

At that point Zlatan will be 36 years old and definitely looking at his one last pay-day. The timing works as well with Ibrahimovic's contract with the French giants PSG running out in the summer of 2016. 

Much like the David Villa move to New York City FC, the striker will have a break to go and play/train where he wants before joining his potential Miami teammates in early 2017 in time for the teams inaugural campaign in Major League Soccer.

Ibrahimovic has scored goals wherever he has been and even in his waning years would be a big get for MLS as he would bring an incredible reputation and masses of attention with him across the Atlantic.

Beckham would be getting an incredible big-name player that would attract other stars to Miami as well. A win-win for all involved if it goes through.
