The Inter Miami administration has been quite active as of late. To recap: the new MLS franchise has officially announced its first two signings in the form of Matias Pellegrini and Julian Carranza. 

Then, ahead of this week's MLS All-Star match, the Inter Miami faithful made its presence felt outside of Orlando City's Exploria Stadium. Pretty impressive from a fan base of a team who has not played one single minute yet. 

News of the first players to join the club ignited Miami fans to ask the next natural question: "who will Inter Miami hire as its first head coach?"

Earlier this week, Jorge Mas answered that question... kind of. The Inter Miami co-owner and business partner with David Beckham started to hint at who will take the reigns as Inter Miami's first manager. 

While speaking to BBC Sport, Mas said the club is "very close" to naming a new manager. 

Looks like Mas and Beckham are standing by their word. Earlier this summer the duo said they would look to sign four to eight new players and a coach by September. 

With Pellegrini and Carranza sealed, and another South American teen reported to be on the way in the form of Venezuelan Christian Makoun, things appear to in full swing in the Inter Miami offices. 

Should Inter Miami sign the midfielder, he would the third 19-year-old in the roster and his style of play would fit just fine with what mas says is the club's criteria on an ideal coach: attack-minded. 

And judging from what Mas had to say, Inter's manager will definitely be a big name. Mas went on to tell BBC Sport, "it's someone you are going to know who has coached before at the highest level and who has played at the highest level."  

Reports from the soccer transfer market have also linked veteran players Gary Cahill (former Chelsea captain) and Antonio Valencia (former Manchester United captain) to Inter Miami. 

Either of two would definitely serve as the leading role inside the locker room. Surely more news of the new MLS club is to come as the preseason for next year's MLS action begins in January.
