Liverpool & Manchester United In Talks Over FIFA-Backed European Premier League

Liverpool & Manchester United In Talks Over FIFA-Backed European Premier League

Liverpool and Manchester United are in talks to join a FIFA-backed tournament named the European Premier League.

Sky News have revealed a host of top clubs from around the world are set to be involved, with a $6 billion [£4.6 billion] package being created to fund a start-up in 2022.

A number of teams from Europe's top five leagues [England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain] could take part and are in negotiations to be named as "founding members."

FIFA are involved with the league, which is earmarked to contain 18 teams with fixtures taking place in midweek, during domestic seasons.

The teams who finish at the top of the table will then take part in a knockout tournament to determine the winner.

When it comes to Premier League involvement, one of the traditional 'Big Six' will miss out as five teams from England are mooted right now.

An official announcement could come later this month and the proposal is said to "potentially be the most important development in world club football for decades."
