​Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modrić and Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani are being targeted in big-money deals by Inter Miami, who are preparing for their first ever season in Major League Soccer.


The new club, who are owned by Manchester United legend David Beckham, are still building their first-team squad ahead of their inaugural season in the competition, needing to fill out their quota of international players specifically.


As a result, Marca claims both Modrić and Cavani are targets for Miami before their first season in MLS gets underway next month.

Edinson Cavani

Real Madrid and Croatia star Modrić has been offered a double-your-money contract in south Florida, with the 34-year-old looking surplus to requirements at the Santiago Bernabéu after entering the final six months of his contract.


It's a similar situation for Cavani too. The arrival of Mauro Icardi last summer has pushed the Uruguay international out of Thomas Tuchel's plans, and the 32-year-old was close to leaving the Parc des Prince during the January transfer window - in the end, his proposed move to Atlético Madrid never happened.


Cavani has also been offered a hefty pay rise as part of a move to Inter Miami, although the MLS side are believed to be struggling to convince the striker that he should make a move to the United States at this point in his career.


Marca claims, however, that it's not actually finances that are going to be the biggest hurdle for Inter Miami. As both players still have a few months left on their respective contracts, getting a deal over the line before March will apparently be almost impossible.

Luka Modric

As an alternative, Inter Miami have been in contact with Mexico international Rodolfo Pizarro, who plays for Club World Cup semi-finalists Monterrey.


According to AS, Pizarro has already agreed on a deal to join Inter Miami before their opening match against LAFC next month, with the 25-year-old costing the MLS newcomers €20m.
