An emotional David said it had been a "dream come true" to sign the Argentina player as he addressed a sold-out crowd of around 20,000 fans, while on stage alongside his family.

"10 years ago, I started my journey to build a new MLS team. I said then that I dreamt of bringing the best players in the world Florida and the great city of Miami. Players who shared our ambition to grow soccer in this country, who would inspire the next generation and help build a legacy in this sport," the dad-of-four said.
