Top European clubs again planning Super League breakaway

  • Europe football'Super League plan leaked

There's always been speculation over a European Super League that could involve the richest clubs breaking away from their national associations and playing without the governance of UEFA in order to increase their income. Roma, Atlético Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Marseille and Internazionale are down as 'initial guests'.

The 11 founder clubs will be guaranteed membership for 20 years, whilst there will also be a second league under the European Super League.

Senior sources at Arsenal say they are unaware of the reported proposals for 2021 and consider the Premier League the best and most competitive in the world. UEFA is not mentioned in the draft.

The German magazine, as part of the latest Football Leaks revelations, claimed on Friday that Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City are among those in negotiations about a new competition to replace the 32-team Champions League in three years' time.

With Europe's elite planning to break into a European Super League, Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp has laughed at the idea of the competition and expressed his happiness with football as it is.

Der Spiegel also claims that there are separate documents detailing how through the intervention of Federation Internationale de Football Association president, Gianni Infantino (then UEFA Secretary General), Manchester City and Paris St-Germain avoided financial fair play sanctions despite breaching the rules.


One senior Whitehall source said: "Government hasn't been told about any of this, which suggests the Premier League has also been kept in the dark".

Bayern Munich and chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, however, have recently denied an attempt to lead some of Europe's biggest clubs into a breakaway "Super League".

Watzke added that such plans were apparently "not very concrete" yet and said Dortmund would not leave the Bundesliga for a new competition.

Ahead of Bayern's 1-1 draw with Freiburg on Saturday, Rummenigge insisted the club remains committed to the Bundesliga and will hold discussions over legal options internally.

If the league goes ahead it will mean the end of the Champions League.
