Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus will make an attempt to relaunch the doomed European Super League project this week. The trio plan to remove their original plan to make certain clubs permanent members according to a report from the Telegraph.
Bianconeri president Andrea Agnelli is due to speak at the Business of Football summit in London next week and is expected to outline new Super League proposals from his club – and Real Madrid and Barcelona – that will ‘remove the deeply unpopular idea of permanent members, and replace it with traditional domestic league qualification’. UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin is also scheduled to speak at the event.
Despite having lost the six original English club members, Barca, Real and Juve are still keen on brining the project to life.
A hearing in the European Court of Justice is due to place later this year in which the three clubs will challenge what they call UEFA’s “monopolistic” position on European football.
Despite the three clubs having been dismissed by UEFA president Ceferin as “charlatans”, the ESL project still exists as a corporate entity, known as A22, and has instructed legal counsel and a Brussels lobby group.
