A new Major League Soccer team is looking to build its arena in the Bronx at the site of a debt-ridden parking garage built for Yankees games.

The New York City Football Club is in talks to demolish the 2,400-Plus Parking Garage On East 153rd Street and put a 30,000-seat stadium in its place.

The parking garage has been on the lookout for a way to cash out, sources told the Wall Street Journal. The soccer club likes the location because it is close to public transportation and thriving Yankee Stadium, the sources added.

England’s Manchester City Football Club owns the soccer team in partnership with the Yankees. Yankees president Randy Levine insisted that talks were in preliminary stages.

“”We’re still looking at four or five sites, in Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx,” Levine told the newspaper. [WSJ]Hiten Samtani
