MIAMI — Soccer legend and part-time model David Beckham has been awarded a Major League Soccer franchise, Gossip Extra has learned, and the official announcement will be made at a star-studded party next week in Miami.

While MLS officials are closed-mouthed and aren’t returning calls, a source close to the project tells Gossip Extra that Commissioner Don Garber has signed off on Beckham’s plan to start play on time for the 2016 season.

“It’s a done deal,” said the source, who asked not to be named. “They’re preparing for the big announcement. There’ll be several celebrities there, including LeBron James.”

Coincidentally, or maybe not, James and the Miami Heat play their last home game this week before a two-week stretch away from the Triple A.

“They picked next week because LeBron’s in town,” the source said. “His being there will create an even bigger buzz.”

James is a soccer nut, and a part-owner of the legendary British club of Liverpool FC. He reportedly has been considering investing in the Miami club.

The Beckham announcement is scheduled to be made as Beck’s management team negotiates with Miami leaders for a location and financing of a soccer-specific stadium.
