Beckham Wants Departing Man Utd Star

Manchester United legend David Beckham, who is now a club owner, reportedly wants to snap up one of the Red Devils' departing players.

Click through the gallery to see United stars whose contracts with the club will expire this month.

The Englishman is believed to be keen to lure former United captain Antonio Valencia to his Major League Soccer side Inter Miami, according to The Sun.

Valencia will be a free agent at the end of June after United announced they will not extend his deal.

The 33-year-old, who wore Beckham's famous No. 7 shirt for United between 2012/13 and 2013/14, would be Inter Miami's first signing and perhaps be a huge drawing card for other players to follow.

Beckham's new club will reportedly join Major League Soccer from 2020 after it was confirmed that the number of teams will be increased from 26 to 30.

Valencia has also been linked with other Premier League sides and a move to Serie A in recent weeks.

With the 2020 MLS season only set to kick off in March next year, the Ecuador international could initially stay in one of the European leagues before completing a move to Beckham's side in January 2020.

He was one of 14 players United released on Friday, with many of those players featuring mainly in the club's reserve sides.
