David and Victoria Beckham may be closer to finding a permanent home in Miami.

Representatives for the couple reportedly toured the Star Island mansion owned by Roy and Lea Black, which is on the market for $16.5 million.

The New York Post first reported that the soccer star and fashion designer may be interested in buying the 10,600-square-foot home at 45 Star Island Drive. The rumor comes as David Beckham moves forward with his investment group’s plans for a $175 million Major League Soccer Stadium in Miami’s Overtown neighborhood.

Roy Black, a prominent criminal defense attorney, and his wife Lea, a former Real Housewives of Miami star, paid $7.1 million for the home in 2011. They relisted their waterfront Miami Beach property in November, down from nearly $17 million the month before. Oren Alexander of Douglas Elliman and Lourdes Alatriste of One Sotheby’s International Realty are the listing agents.

Alexander declined to comment to The Real Deal on whether the Beckhams were looking to buy the house.

The mansion, built in 1981, sits on a 1.07 acre or 46,429-square-foot lot, property records show. It has 193 feet of water frontage, according to the listing. The asking price equates to $1,551 per square foot for the home or $355 per square foot for the land.

Architectural designs by Ralph Choeff for a new home can be included in the sale, Alexander previously told TRD.

The property is next to Shay Kostiner’s 44 Star Island, which was just listed for $24 million. Kostiner has scored approvals for a new 27,000-square-foot mansion on a 1.1-acre lot, and the plans are included in the sale price.

Star Island, among the ritziest enclaves of Miami Beach, is home to entertainers Gloria and Emilio EstefanLennar CEO Stuart Miller, billionaire Phillip Frost and his wife Patricia, Sean “Diddy” Combs; the “Boob God” Leonard Hochstein and his wife, Lisa, of the “Real Housewives of Miami” — who have torn down their home and are constructing a new mansion.
