Man City owners eager to add to New York, Melbourne, Yokohama

The City Football Group has it's sights set on the ownership of more football clubs.

Manchester City's owners already have MLS club New York City FC, Australian side Melbourne City and Japan's Yokohama F Marinos but chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak admits there is more business to be done elsewhere.

"Today, we have four clubs and we are going through the development of the four clubs," he told City TV.

"Melbourne, New York and Yokohama are developing well. We have an ambition as a football group to have an organisation that is global and that will have multiple clubs as part of it.

"I would say when the opportunity arises - and we are looking at opportunities - you can expect us to add to the number of clubs we have already within the organisation.

"It's too early for me to pinpoint. We are looking at opportunities, we'll see how it goes. At the right time, the right place, we will tell you."
