David Beckham is reportedly keen to call his new MLS franchise Miami Beckham United.

David Beckham has reportedly settled on a name for his new MLS franchise.

The former England captain is expected to set up the Miami-based team before the end of the year in order to avoid paying out an extra £40m for its creation to the MLS.

Miami Beckham United is understood to be favoured by the 38-year-old after the domain name MiamiBeckhamUnited.com was registered earlier this week, according to real estate website exMiami.org.

Miami Beckham United LLC has also been set up as a company by Beckham's business partner Simon Fuller.
