Man City owner Sheikh Mansour close to sealing MLS deal

Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan is reportedly closing in on the 20th MLS license.

Philly.com's The Goalkeeper has been told by sources that the Manchester City owner has held talks with MLS Commissioner Don Garber about taking control of a second team in New York.

Sheikh Mansour has been linked with MLS for a little while now with reports pointing to the United Arab Emirati paying $100million as an expansion fee.

New York Cosmos will not be the expansion franchise, despite plenty of speculation that they will join New York Red Bull in the top flight, but in fact it will be another team to be placed in New York City.
