According to a new report, the leading candidates for Amazon's second North American headquarters are Dallas, New York City, and a DC suburb.

Amazon's request for proposals, made public in September 2017, left open the door that the company could entertain multiple offers, or opt to select none at all, with a disclaimer at the very end of the eight-page document that started the company's HQ2 search.

Barca, Juve, Manchester City, PSG, Arsenal, Milan, Inter Milan, Roma and Marseille were not immediately available to comment. Five of those eleven are from the Premier League: Manchester United , Manchester City , Liverpool , Arsenal and Chelsea .

Things got more interesting when Mike Grella, Amazon's director of economic development, posted on Twitter: "Memo to the genius leaking info about Crystal City, VA as #HQ2 selection".

The long-awaited decision has yet to be made, but the Journal, citing a person familiar with the decision making process, reported that the internet retail titan will choose two locations for their newest headquarters. The company had promised to bring 50,000 high-paying jobs and $5 billion in construction to HQ2's home.

He added that China would endeavour to "foster a world-class business environment" and that China´s doors will open "ever wider". US President Donald Trump says China has hurt the United States economically but that he was ready to make a deal on trade.

Under the new plan, the e-commerce giant will split the workforce with 25,000 employees in each city, the WSJ report https://www.wsj.com/articles/amazon-plans-to-split-hq2-evenly-between-two-cities-1541446552?mod=searchresults&page=1&pos=3 said.

Amazon has not confirmed either report. Dallas-Fort Worth ranked No. 12. Officials aren't turning down the hyperbole any time soon - New York Governor Cuomo recently joked that he'd change his name to "Amazon Cuomo" if it guaranteed a headquarters in the state. Splitting the project in two could also ease concerns over housing and traffic in host cities, the Journal reported. The aging NY subway system has several issues the city is working to fix.
