MACAU (AP) -- David Beckham says he is looking forward to becoming the owner of a new MLS franchise in Miami.
Beckham says ''nothing has been confirmed yet, but it's something I am very excited about.''
He adds that ''Miami is something that really excites me because there is a great energy down there. They are ready for a football team in that part of the world.''
Beckham was speaking at a promotional event at The Venetian casino in Macau. He is expected to attend Saturday's WBO welterweight title fight between Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios at The Venetian.
