Both companies have massive budgets, thought to top £15million an hour, to be able to delve into the sport market.

But there is a possibility that a deal will fall through as it may clash with Premier League rights deals.

Sport shows have proved remarkably popular in the United States and the two companies want to bring them to the UK.

American company Fox Soccer produced a documentary with Liverpool under Brendan Rodgers in 2012.

If a deal does go through, then Netflix and Amazon are likely to show fly-on-the-wall documentaries during pre-season.

Meanwhile Manchester United ace Zlatan Ibrahimovic has seen his old mansion go up for sale.

The luxury Cheshire pad, in which the Swede paid £32,000-a-month to rent, is on the market for a cool £5million.

It boasts six bedrooms, a pool, table tennis tables, an outdoor bar and state-of-the-art gym.
