Bloomberg today confirmed a recently rumored report that Manchester City is interested in becoming an owner of a new Major League Soccer team in Queens, New York. MLS fan boys will love this, but the proposed name of the club is reportedly New York Football Club. That’s certainly going to rub some people the wrong way for obvious reasons.
Whether or not City doesn’t become the owner of the MLS team, which is likely to become the 20th team in MLS, we won’t know for a while. But the article does report that David Beckham is reportedly interested in investing in it.
