EXCLUSIVE: A handful of English football clubs have been approached about joining a new European competition.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are mentioned by insiders in talks for a ‘European Premier League’.

It is not thought that any of the English clubs has yet signed legally binding terms to join, and it was unclear which member of the so-called “Big Six” would miss out if only five are ultimately involved.

Serie A, La Liga and Bundesliga clubs are also involved in the proposed 18-team competition that could start in 2022.

It follows the blueprint – dubbed Project Big Picture – that would have seen the Premier League reduced in size from 20 to 18 clubs but was rejected at a recent meeting of club executives for a “strategic review”.
