Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has warned the Barclays Premier League would be in danger of becoming a "circus" if the motivation to take the game around the globe was purely driven by money, rather than "innovation".

Chairmen of the 20 member clubs have agreed to explore the proposal of an extra ´international round´ of fixtures in five major cities across the world from the 2010-11 season.

"It deserves a deeper look into it, and you always have to think forward." The Arsenal boss declared: "But if the money is the first priority forget it because it will become a circus. The first priority is the quality of your competition, and you have to take time to think about that."
