As the transfer markets go by, Inter Miami has more and more figures. David Beckham's team in Major League Soccer (MLS), which already has stars of the caliber of Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo Higuaín in its ranks, now has two very high-profile Brazilian players who are not going through their prime in Europe.

Heading into the next transfer window, Beckham has set his sights on Marcelo, one of Real Madrid's captains, and on Willian, who is currently one of Arsenal FC's best paid. Both haven't performed this season at their best level and could emigrate to the United States.

According to the Spanish newspaper AS, the 33-year-old left-back ends his contract with Real Madrid on June 30, 2022. But his sports performance has diminished due to his muscle injuries and the idea of the white club is to convince him to get out of it. Marcelo, vice captain of Zidane's squad, would leave the team after almost 15 years.

He landed at the Santiago Bernabéu in January 2007 and coincided with Beckham in those first six months, before the Englishman left for the Los Angeles Galaxy. The aforementioned media points out that both maintain a good relationship and that Inter Miami could be a good option for a Marcelo who won the Champions League times. The only difficult thing to negotiate will be his contract: he earns more than USD 10 million net a year.

He would not be the only former Brazilian team player targeted by Beckham's team, currently coached by Phil Neville. The other's striker Willian, 32, who came to Arsenal FC as a free player this season but didn't have the expected impact. Mikel Arteta expected much more from him and now there is a good chance that he will come out.
