MANCHESTER CITY owners are considering adding Dutch club NAC Breda to their club stable.
City Football Group currently owns or are involved in 10 clubs worldwide and want to expand further.
There is already a strong relationship with several young players who have joined Breda on loan from the Etihad in recent years – including Angelino, Manu Garcia and Enes Unai.
Now there is an opportunity for them to further strengthen this relationship by initiating further talks on joining the CFG.
Sources within the group say nothing is finalized but an agreement remains possible.
Breda would be the fifth European club to join the stable – alongside City, Girona, Troyes and Lommel.
The CFG also has clubs in New York, Melbourne, Japan, China, India and Uruguay.
Troyes was the last club CFG acquired in 2020.
CFG took over the Ligue 1 team in 2020 after that give up her interest in Nancy.
They were due to pay around £12.2million for the second-tier club but talks were put on hold when lockdown was imposed during Covid.

Also the owners of the city expressed interest in acquiring a minority stake in Russian giant Spartak Moscow last year.
But the talks have not resulted in anything concrete so far.
However with Russia sinks into a siege of neighboring Ukraineit is unlikely that CFG will want to continue pursuing Spartak for the foreseeable future.
