European Super League?

REVEALED: Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City 'among 11 founder teams in secret talks to launch European Super League' in major threat to future of Premier League and Champions League
Premier League's biggest clubs are in talks to enter a European Super League
It would threaten the future of both the Premier League and Champions League

England's leading clubs have been secretly plotting to join a European Super League that would destroy the Premier League and the Champions League and condemn clubs like Tottenham and Everton to relative obscurity, according to explosive documents contained in the latest Football Leaks instalment.

In a story published by Der Spiegel in Germany on Friday night it is claimed that Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal are part of a 'secret coalition' exploring the possibility of forming an elite competition by 2021.

The other 'founding' teams involved in clandestine discussions are Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, PSG and AC Milan, with five further clubs listed as 'initial guests' to form a 16 team competition.

As recently as October 22, Der Spiegel report, Real Madrid received an email with the subject line: 'Draft of an Agreement of the 16', with a plan to sign up to the agreement later this month.

Attached to the document sent to Madrid president Florentino Perez was the draft of a 13-page 'binding term sheet' of the 11 European top clubs for the establishment of a Super League, stating that the Champions League would cease to exist by 2021.

It reportedly says the 11 'founders' of the 'European Super League' would 'not be at risk of relegation and would be guaranteed membership for 20 years'.

Der Spiegel say that the five 'initial guests', according to the document, would be Atlético Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Olympique Marseille, Inter Milan and AS Roma, which would certainly come as a blow to Spurs.

Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke told Der Spiegel that he believed 'that a few of Europe's large clubs are clearly working on it', although he did add that any such plans are 'not very concrete' at this stage.

Talk of a European Super League first surfaced back in 2016 when the aforementioned five English clubs held a meeting in London with the man Der Spiegel claim to be the mastermind of the plan - American deal maker Charlie Stillitano, who organises high-profile friendlies between Major League Soccer teams and the powerhouses of Europe.

Bayern Munich, report Der Spiegel, enlisted the services of international law firm Cleary Gottlieb to exploring the possibility of quitting both the Bundesliga and the Champions League, with Bayern lawyer Michael Gerlinger working in secret with six other top European clubs to come up with a plan.

If UEFA thought a 2016 revamp that favoured the richer clubs would see off such a threat, the emergence of the new Real Madrid documents would suggest discussions are ongoing. Der Spiegel said Madrid had declined to comment, while Bayern denied any knowledge of the 'binding term sheet'.

The Premier League also declined to comment on Friday night but insiders appeared fairly relaxed about the developments, pointing to the fact that it was only in June that the clubs signed up to next multi-billion pound tree-year TV deal that runs from next season.

I doubt it will happen but it's cogs turning like this that led to the formation of the Champions League and Premier League. Watered down versions of the original vision.

Still, the idea is is sickening to me.

Unrelated but related, and therefore pertinent and relevant.

They seem to be on fire at the moment with this and the FFP stuff. They were behind the Ronaldo one as well weren't they? Proper investigative journalism is a very valuable thing. Holding power to account

That article above definitely has a bit of a shit Daily Mail overlay to it though.

Seems so, but nobody else is reporting it.

Daily Mail is an absolute cunt's rag, but their sports department has somehow recruited some pretty decent journalists.

I will do what I can to avoid clicking on their site for obvious reasons, but still their sports staff are pretty good.

Which is more than a tad annoying.

Bunch of corrupt cunts but i can't say I'm surprised as it had to be the worst kept secret in football that those two clubs were rotten to the core. I still stand by my orignal statement that the Mail is a shit rag.

And I still say that you missed the point entirely.

The Mail is shite (scroll up for my views) but their sports section is pretty good comparatively.

But in the meantime, feel free to pick and choose which part of the story you refuse to believe, depending on your football alliances.

Consider your clip around the ear duly administered.

This will be the thing to condemn Everton to relative obscurity? I thought that they already had been

A European Superleague can kiss my arse.

If it happened, I think I'd fuck the whole thing off. I love the cut and thrust of playing the shite teams and watching big teams stumble against them.

I'd agree with this although bizarrely I know a bloke who does sports writing for the Mail, yet never seems to watch (even on TV) the (fairly major) sport he's paid to report on unless he's been sent by them

Why don't all clubs in all leagues consider binning FIFA? Their precious international competitions will be pretty shabby without the majority of stars playing in it.

They only act in self preservation, it's never for the benefit of anyone bar themselves

This is true of the whole football industry from the top down.

There are no redeeming features.

European super league chat always pops its head up in the time before the Champions League rights are up for bid again. Seems to be on a 2 years cycle.

My only actual experience of football league structure is the Tandridge youth league and even at that level it's all about petty fines and procedure
