Saul and his brother Aaron, will form 30 teams and sign over 500 players between age four and 18.
Manchester United have previously shown interest in Saul and are expected to submit a bid in the summer transfer window.
Jude Bellingham, Jack Grealish and James Maddison are all on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s shortlist.

Arsenal Coach Mikel Arteta is a big fan of the Spaniard and will try to improve his midfield options but Champions League football could be crucial.
