David Beckham’s Inter Miami wants to sign English players ahead of the first ever their Major League Soccer debut in March next year.
And Jorge Mas one of four co-owners including Beckham on Thursday revealed the club will have someone to commit to developing the team soon.
They have signed only two players so far, Julian Carranza from Banfield and midfielder Matias Pellegrini from Estudiantes but Mas believes progress is set to accelerate.
Gary Cahill and Antonio Valencia have both been linked with a move to the MLS having left Chelsea and Manchester United respectively.
”We are trying to get someone who can also commit here for a period of time and leave his fingerprints on our team,’ Mas told BBC Sport.
”It’s someone you’re going to know who has coached before at the highest level and who has played at the highest level.’
Mas also says the club are targeting English players and the first coach will ‘fit an attacking style’.
”We’ve looked at some English players. We’re having some conversations with some English players and we anticipate Inter Miami will have some English presence.’
