The New York Times adds that TPG, which counts Creative Artists Agency (CAA), Spotify and Vice in its broad portfolio, would be acquiring Goal through one of its affiliates.  Talks between the two parties were initiated late last year, says the report, and DAZN has committed to continue working with Goal under a potential deal.     DAZN declined to comment on the New York Times story when contacted by SportsPro.
