‘We are Massive!’, ‘They all wanna be like us’ – Many fans react as Liverpool, Arsenal & Chelsea plotting Man City-style investment


Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims Liverpool and Arsenal could copy City Football Group (CFG) as they consider moving into the multi-club network approach.

The City Football Group have invested in teams all across the world. In Europe, they possess close ties to Troyes in France, Lommel SK in Belgium, Girona in Spain and, as of July, Palermo in Italy.

Operating closely with clubs is nothing revolutionary as clubs have working with ‘feeder clubs’ for many years. This is a different approach though, with owners buying multiple teams to facilitate the movement of players between them all.

The model has been working for the City Football Group having claimed 30 trophies across their clubs in the last 15 years. Arsenal and Liverpool now want something similar and expand their global brands by moving into other countries.

According to The Guardian, the owners of Arsenal and Liverpool have now joined Chelsea in looking into establishing a multi-club network pioneered by Man City’s owner, City Football Group.

Chelsea owner Boehly is believed to have begun the process of finding other clubs to invest in after reportedly being turned down by the Brazilian club Santos.

The report was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
