Chelsea owner eyes link up with David Beckham’s MLS Miami project

Posted by

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic is said to be interested in pumping in some investment into David Beckham’s long proposed MLS team in Miami, according to reports in the Miami Herald.

The former England and Manchester United star is keen on becoming chairman of the new MLS franchise, though the report shows that he may not be the club’s majority shareholder.

Beckham is keen to add an experienced businessman to his board and Abramovic is rumoured to be one of the high profile names taking an interest.

Despite Beckham’s obvious wealth, he is still short of the necessary financial clout in order to make the club work and needs further investment to put the plan into action.

It is said that he needs an estimated $300million to help fund the building of a new stadium as well as helping to set up a state-of-the-art youth academy as well as bringing new players on board.
