Calls for clubs to break even; football ROUND-UP.

MANCHESTER UNITED will today step up their campaign for greater financial controls in the PREMIER LEAGUE.

United are one of the prime movers in an effort to extend spending controls, similar to UEFA's financial fair play regulations, throughout England's top flight.

Tomorrow's meeting of the 20 club chairmen will flesh out the details of the proposals.

One possible measure would see clubs being obliged to break even, but to give greater flexibility for wealthy owners to put money - not loans - into clubs than is allowed under UEFA's rules.

The clubs will also consider some sort of wage control measure - not a salary cap but a way in which to try to ensure the riches which will arrive next season courtesy of the new PS3bn TV deal will not immediately be swallowed up in player salary increases.
