David Beckham, pushing forward on his quest to bring a Major League Soccer team to Miami, is taking a serious look at Marlins Park as a temporary home until he can build a permanent soccer-specific stadium, according to Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez and two other sources.

The soccer icon was in town Wednesday, touring potential locations with his business manager Simon Fuller and billionaire Marcelo Claure, owner of Brightstar Corp., a Miami-based global wireless distributor. Beckham is also considering FIU Stadium as a temporary venue. Beckham and Fuller had dinner Tuesday night at the home of Claure, and Miami mayor Carlos Gimenez and his wife, Lourdes, were in attendance.

“They do want an urban site,” Gimenez said on Wednesday. “I do agree that an urban site would work better.”
