It comes after it was reported the Premier League’s Big Six clubs have agreed to join the breakaway competition. Premier League leaders Manchester City, reigning champions Liverpool and rivals Manchester United are set to be joined by London teams Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham in the new competition launched to rival the Champions League.
