There are not many bigger names in the world of football than that of David Beckham.
The former English captain is a global celebrity, fashion icon, Manchester United cult hero and an extremely successful entrepreneur.
However, while Beckham may be one of the most recognisable figures on the planet, there is still a very select group of footballers who have a level of fame that exceeds even that of the Englishman.
One such man is Lionel Messi.
The Barcelona superstar makes football look easy and redefines the term ‘the beautiful game’.

He has broken just about every record there is to break at the famous Spanish club and continues to make the business of scoring look frightfully simple.
Now, just imagine the power of any brand that could somehow link Beckham and Messi together - it would be unstoppable.
Well, according to Catalunya Radio, that could be about to happen.
That is because the Spanish station, per talkSPORT, reported today that there have been talks between Beckham’s new MLS franchise, Inter Miami, and Messi’s representatives over a potential move in future.
Incredibly, the magical forward could be available for free at the end of this season but Barca are desperate to hand him a ‘lifetime contract’.
However, the report also mentioned that Messi’s team have made massive demands that may be out of reach of the budding franchise.
Should Beckham convince Messi to make the switch though, it would be an almighty coup.
You can’t help but think the man would pay for himself in a trice once ‘Messi’ shirts go on sale, too.
He would make the MLS look like banter football though, and the scoring records in the States would simply fall at his feet without any resistance.
Zlatan certainly would not be able to stake a claim to being the best in the MLS anymore.
Messi would be missed in Europe, but the prospect of him linking up with a Beckham-backed team is simply tantalising.
