European football league is ‘inevitable’ as Prem giants Manchester United, Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham eye breakaway

The Sun believes a breakaway European football league with a salary cap for players is inevitable for leading Premier League clubs to prevent them facing ‘catastrophic’ financial implications, according to a new report into the sport’s finances.

The article explains, the best way they can about the current Sky and BT Sport TV deal and how rocketing wages currently outstrip the amount of money being earned through TV and sponsorship money.

Until the next time!

Come on CITY!
