Chelsea, Man Utd offered £175M to compete in 'Dream Football League'

The likes of Manchester United and Chelsea will be offered £175 MILLION to compete in a Qatari-backed 'Dream Football League'.The Times reports the Qatari royal family will release plans next month to set up a 'Dream Football League' (DFL) involving clubs such as Manchester United and Barcelona in a direct threat to Champions League. Qatar, who will host the 2022 World Cup, are aiming to become a major power in world football and are reported to be willing to offer each club £175million just for taking part.

To put that in perspective, Chelsea were awarded £47.3m for winning last season's Champions League.

The total prize money given out by Europe's leading club competition is £595m - that figured would be dwarfed by the money given by the DFL to just four of its 24 proposed participants.
