United to buy A-league club?


Manchester United could replicate their rivalry with Manchester City down under.   It is being reported that they may buy A-league champions Melbourne Victory.  Manchester City already own Melbourne City.

Formerly known as Melbourne Heart, Melbourne City were acquired for $A12m in January last year.  The takeover led to major financial and profile boosts for the club.

However, Liverpool already have a relationship with Victory and might be more natural partners.
