David Beckham has pulled off the coup of a lifetime in landing Lionel Messi for Inter Miami - after taking transfer adivce from Sir Alex Ferguson.

The former England captain's dream of bringing a world-famous superstar to his MLS franchise was realised with the announcement that the iconic World Cup winner be heading to South Beach this summer. Fighting off the 35-year-old's former side Barcelona as well as Saudi Pro League team Al-Hilal, it is probably fair to say that the transfer is the most stunning capture in the history of the sport in the US.

Although Inter Miami's form has been pretty dismal in recent times - they sit bottom of the Eastern Conference - one imagines that the arrival of Messi could have a galvanising effect in the coming months. As well as the commercial benefits of welcoming a star of his status to South Beach, it seems inevitable that the Herons' on-pitch fortunes will improve.
