Premier League giants Manchester United and Liverpool are among the top European clubs set to be invited to participate in a revamped and expanded Fifa Club World Cup, The Times reports.

That would see the likes of Real Madrid, AC Milan, Bayern Munich and Barcelona all potentially involved too.

The news comes via a report in the Times, which details how the competition would replace the current annual "Club World Cup" and also see the Confederations Cup being scrapped.

Emilia also admitted she's "sad" to be leaving the show after starring on it since the beginning in 2011. The actor also spoke out against shows who didn't offer both female and male leads equal pay.

At present, the Club World Championship is held every year, but exclusively the strongest clubs in the continents as well as the reigning champion of the host country compete in this tournament. The 24 clubs would share a pot of approximately £1.5 billion with the victor earning £100 million and a guaranteed £50 million just for participating.

Infantino insists that the new format will reduce the number of games the "great players" would play in each four-year cycle, but the leagues are sceptical and object to cramming new competitions into the football calendars. The other twelve clubs will be picked from around the world.

It is hoped the competition will begin in 2021 and that China are keen to host the inaugural edition of the tournament.
