The footballing world was rocked last summer when top European clubs announced the formation of a European Super League. While the project received opposition and criticism from UEFA, FIFA, and fans, which led to most clubs dropping out of the project; Barcelona, Juventus and Real Madrid remained keen on making it a reality.
The European giants had suffered financially due to the coronavirus pandemic, and the European Super League was meant to be a money-making project that was controlled by the clubs themselves. However, the project was negatively received as it gave reservations to the top clubs only while having no set consequences like a relegation system for poor performances.
While in the end, the aforementioned clubs did dissolve the project after massive backlash, they remained keen on making it happen in the near future. Telegraph report that Barcelona, Juve and Los Blancos are preparing to revive the Super League with the removal of the much-hated permanent membership idea with domestic success being an added possibility to joining the Super League.
UEFA had previously threatened to take actions against the clubs that are in support of the creation of such a competition and could possibly take harsh actions against Barca, Real and Juve if they do announce the revival of their previously rejected proposal.
Andre Agnelli is said to be preparing for an announcement that is likely to take place this week and it remains to be seen whether UEFA, FIFA and fans approve of this.
