Moyes told talkSPORT: ‘It is something which looks a really interesting project.
‘I watch the MLS quite a bit and it is getting better. I don’t know how many people have seen Atlanta. The soccer team are getting more support than the NFL team.’
Moyes believes that the facilities in MLS are of a very high standard.
He said: ‘We talk about Tottenham’s stadium and that is incredible but wait until you see Atlanta’s stadium, it is unbelievable. So MLS is growing and Miami is a great city. It is something which I would consider as an option.
‘Miami has got a bit of magic about it. Atlanta’s training centre is as good as anything in the Premier League and I know Miami are trying to do the same over there. The MLS is an exciting league.’

2013-2014: Manchester United

The Scotsman’s preference is to return to the Premier League, but he would also be interested in reuniting with Beckham, with the pair having briefly played together in 1995, when the winger had a short spell on loan from Manchester United.
Moyes said: ‘My preference would be to be back in the Premier League but if the opportunity came around, I would have to look at it.
‘I do know David from our time at Preston so there is a bit of history but we will have to wait and see.’
Beckham gained valuable experience during his time at Preston and managed to score from a corner against Doncaster Rovers before returning to Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.
In addition to Moyes, other high-profile names to have been linked with Inter Miami include Carlo Ancelotti, Thierry Henry and Gennaro Gattuso.
So far Inter Miami have signed three players – Venezuelan defender Christian Makoun as well as Argentines Matias Pellegrini and Julian Carranza.
