Man United, Liverpool & more received ‘significant money’ from UEFA to leave, but Super League could continue without English clubs


An insight into the potential motives behind the communal decision on the part of the Premier League’s clubs to depart the European Super League has been forthcoming on Tuesday night.

English clubs exit

The headline news across the global football landscape over the last couple of hours has of course come in the form of the near collapse of the ESL.

ESL to move forward?

The stance on the part of the English clubs, however, has not yet been officially followed by their counterparts in Spain and Italy.

Whilst reports have mounted surrounding the departures of all of Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and AC Milan, none, as things stand, have made their decisions public.

Real Madrid, Juventus and Inter Milan technically remain Super League members, too.

As per reports from both Mundo Deportivo and El Larguero, it will soon be announced that some, but not necessarily all of the remaining heavyweights of La Liga and Serie A intend to form the Super League, regardless of outside interference.

‘Tranquility’ is said to remain at both Real Madrid and Barcelona, who see this evening’s developments as a setback, rather than a defining moment for the competition.

Significantly, it is also suggested by MD that the departure of the Premier League clubs involved only came after all six were offered ‘significant sums of money’ by UEFA.
