Those players were hardly courted by Inter Miami CF. Unfortunately, their clubs would not let them go, Or even worse, they completely dismissed Beckham’s offers.
The winter transfer market closed its doors on in Europe and the teams will have to wait until June 11, 2020 to again have the chance to strengthen their workforce. If some like Bruno Fernandes (25), Christian Eriksen (27) or Krzysztof Piątek (24) were able to be transferred to their wishes, others will find the time longer. Like the French international, Olivier Giroud (33 years old). The former Gunner was looking to bounce back after half a season to polish the Chelsea bench. This season, he played less than 200 minutes in the Premier League, just over 3 full games. In the absence of playing time, he wanted to change his tune and many clubs tried to afford it. Inter Miami CF, Lazio and Barça were nevertheless very interested. None will have finally found an agreement with the Blues, even if the Italian teams had found common ground with the player. Giroud could pay for his club situation and miss UEFA Euro this summer.
Edinson Cavani (32) also risks moping on the substitutes’ bench during his last six months of contract with PSG. “El Matador” was very close to joining Atlético de Madrid, had a firm offer from Inter Miami CF but the leaders of the French/Qatar club never accepted their offers. As a result, the Uruguayan center-forward will end the season in Paris as a benched player. How good would it have been t have him in Miami, instead of looking at his teammates playing? Still in Ligue 1, Islam Slimani (31) already wanted to leave the AS Monaco, and could have been a deal. Despite a great first part of the season (7 goals, 7 assists in Ligue 1), the arrival of new Spanish coach Robert Moreno cost him his starting place alongside Wissam Ben Yedder. Several Premier League clubs, including Aston Villa, have followed closely the track leading to the Algerian international, an offer of which has been rejected by Monaco.
Often struggling this season with Atlético, Thomas Lemar (24) was also announced as a potential high target for Inter Miami CF. He was even placed on the market by the Colchoneros, who hoped to obtain a few million, in order to recoup the 70 million euros invested in June 2018. But the French international refused several projects like Miami, Lyon, even FC Bayern, Arsenal or Tottenham, deciding to stay in Madrid to finally win under the orders of Diego Simeone.
