The new club will already be looking for talent to improve a squad that has missed out this season.
At a press conference that initially announced the club, Becks made a noise that he spoke regularly to the best talents in the world in order to lure them into his project.
Olivier Giroud, who has just signed with AC Milan, was recently linked with a move to the club and is said to be offered a £ 4m apartment to live in.
While even Lionel Messi has hinted that he would like to play his last days in the US.
So what can potential transfer targets expect from living in Miami?
Help the former Man United with SunSport to make “The Magic City” the go-to place for the best footballers in the world.
While you might have to watch out for a tropical storm here and there, the weather in Miami is mostly perfect.
January averages 20 degrees Celsius, while the winter highs are between 23 and 27 degrees Celsius.
The rainy season starts in May and ends in mid-October, but temperatures are between 27-35 degrees Celsius and it’s insanely humid.
Well done, the football season starts in May or it would be hell to play in these conditions.

They say life is a beach … Miami has several from Key Biscayne to North Beach where top-notch athletes get their tan every day.
There’s 21st to 45th Street, which runs next to the Miami Beach Boardwalk and South Pointe Park.
Some of the best hotels and restaurants in the world are nearby, so this is the perfect place.

Miami’s cuisine is regal and ocean influenced, with plenty of seafood on offer.
Latin American food is key here, so most restaurants offer many Cuban-influenced dishes – most of them meat-based.
The city’s most exclusive restaurants are Terrazza at the Shore Club Hotel, Zuma in the heart of downtown Miami, and Jaya at the Setai Hotel.
Dining by the pool at the Shore Club Hotel is what most sports stars do in Miami
Jaya is a favorite of the likes of Jay Z and Bono when they’re in town, with menu highlights like a whole branzino for a reasonable £ 27.
Terrazza’s Italian pool tariff will attract many soccer players looking to stock up on carbohydrates.
While Zuma’s light Japanese dishes will make weight-conscious footballers foam at the mouth.

At the heart of David Beckham’s Miami franchise is a super stadium suitable for the best players in the world.
Located in the Overtown neighborhood near the Miami River, the 18,000-seater arena was originally controversial by locals who didn’t think a stadium should be built on the site.
Next to the stadium is a first class training center with first class facilities.
However, be sure that it is a state-of-the-art venue that is not only suitable for soccer but is also ready to host concerts with the world’s leading pop stars.
Interestingly, it won’t be the largest stadium in the country, but with Beckham it will certainly sell out week after week.

The celebrity culture
After all, that crowd can’t be wrong.
The world’s most famous faces choose Miami as a vacation destination and flock to their private jets regularly during the summer.
Some celebrities even call Miami home, so any footballer looking to embrace the celebrity culture should look no further.
Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias, Lenny Kravitz, Sean Combs, Matt Damon, and Jennifer Lopez all have lavish homes in Miami.
Most choose Star Island, so expect footballers to check out homes in this area.
With footballers making the transition into film and television, big city productions are on the rise.
Could the team be on a future episode of The Rocks Show “Ballers”?

Anyone moving to Miami must be aware of the sports culture that runs through the city’s veins.
While the Miami Dolphins haven’t seen a superbowl success since 1974, they are anchored in NFL history thanks to legendary quarterback Dan Marino.
The NBA team Miami Heat was the unique home of LeBron James as they won consecutive championships in 2012 and 2013.
They are also represented in the MLB by the Marlins, which are co-owned by New York Yankee star Derek Jeter and have won two world championships.

For shopping and dining, incoming footballers won’t look any further than strolling along the Bayside Marketplace.
It stretches along the bay walls of the bank and features designer shops, posh restaurants, and a great atmosphere that encompasses everything that makes Miami great.
By the way, Miami Vice has filmed episodes here a lot, so if it’s good enough for Don Johnson …

No doubt every big Beckham name will be driving a new engine.
With that in mind, you’ll definitely want to drive down Ocean Drive with its surrounding Art Deco hotels and bars.
The Clevelander Hotel, with its bar and huge swimming pool, is a great place to cool off in the hot heat.
Don’t let the architecture impress you.
It’s an amazing experience for any tourist and future Beckham signer.
So where do we register?

On the list of must-do things in Miami – and Becks doesn’t even have to sell the tourist paradise – is the Everglades.
Unlike anything else in the world, this is your best chance of seeing a crocodile swimming in its natural habitat.
The 1.5-acre wetlands begin in Orlando on the Kissimmee River and end on Lake Okeechobee.
