Arsenal and Liverpool’s American owners are planning multi-club networks.
According to the Guardian, Arsenal’s Stan Kroenke and Liverpool’s John W Henry are discussing the possibility of expanding their football club portfolio in the near future.
The City Football Group, founded in 2013 by Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour, owns 11 football clubs around the world, with the most recent addition coming in July when they acquired a majority stake in Serie A side Palermo.
Kroenke, who already owns the MLS team Colorado Rapids as well as the NFL team Los Angeles Rams, is said to have looked into purchasing clubs in Brazil, Belgium, and Portugal.
Meanwhile, Liverpool’s owner, Fenway Sports Group, which also owns the Boston Red Sox and the Pittsburgh Penguins in the NHL, is looking to expand its portfolio further into football.
New Chelsea co-owner Boehly made no secret of his desire to launch a new multi-club network, praising Red Bull Football Group and CFG for pioneering the concept.
