Manchester United have entered talks to purchase cash-strapped Central Coast Mariners and could relocate the A-League side, according to reports in Australia.

United have held lengthy talks with Mike Charlesworth, owner of the Australian side, relating to the purchase of the club's licence in a bid to turn the side into a sister club of the Red Devils.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, a deal is not yet done but an agreement could see the Mariners uprooted from their Central Coast home and moved to the suburbs of North Sydney, subject to approval from Football Australia and the majority of A-League sides.

United already have connections with the Australian side, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's assistant coach Mike Phelan a sporting director with the Mariners in 2018. He spent five months in his role with the club.

The Mariners have searched for investment for some time having constantly struggled financially in recent years. Charlesworth announced last August that he intended to sell his entire stake in the club.

Central Coast are two-time champions of the A-League and have won the Grand Final once, but are best remembered on these shores for hosting Usain Bolt for 'an indefinite training period' in 2018.

The latest development is an indication that United are looking to follow in the footsteps of local rivals Manchester City, who have developed a bulky portfolio of associated clubs worldwide, including A-League side Melbourne City.

The Premier League side purchased Melbourne Heart in 2014 as part of the City Football Group global network, before rebranding them. They also own New York City, Mumbai City and Montevideo City Torque.

City initially bought an 80 per cent stake in the Melbourne club, worth AUD$11m (£6m) before buying the remaining 20 per cent for AUD$2.25m (£1.25m).
