arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenhamand Liverpool were all part of the scheme that was abandoned after only 48 hours in April 2021. AC Milan, Inter Milanand Atlético Madrid were also apart from the controversial rule that led to strong backlash from fans, politicians, the media and many players and coaches.
The amazing reaction prompted the Premier League teams to be the first to draw their interest from the competition. However, Tebas believes real Madrid President Florentino Perez may be planning another breakaway league without Premier League teams.
“Florentino never loses, he always comes up with something,” Tebas told a recent news conference via Soccer Italy. “The Super League is a concept that started many years ago and came more from Florentino than Real Madrid.
“It persists. They attach great importance to what the EU could solve, but European governments have already positioned themselves. They are working on another project that will fail again, without the English teams, against UEFA, FIFA and the Premier League.”
Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid all have a vested interest in reviving the controversial proposals. A document published by WirtschaftsWoche revealed five major changes made to make the European Super League more palatable.

One of these involved the removal of a permanent membership without relegation or promotion; Instead, a top division with 20 teams and a second division, also consisting of 20 clubs, should be developed. Shortly after these new proposals were drafted, Perez claimed the European Super League would bring “financial fair play” and “freedom” to European football, before calling UEFA a “monopoly”.
Perez has often been regarded as one of the key ringleaders and architects of the European Super League. And the controversial Real Madrid boss reiterated his belief that the Super League is the best thing for European football, before announcing he will “remind UEFA who Real Madrid is”.
“The Super League is not just a competition, it is much more. It tries to change the dynamic of football. It’s freedom, it’s financial fair play,” Perez told Real Madrid members at the club’s general assembly in November.
“The Super League is the project that will avoid situations where clubs are supported indiscriminately. It would only develop if it was compatible with the domestic leagues.”

“UEFA has rejected any kind of idea or plan, clubs have been threatened, their presidents have been insulted by the UEFA President. It is time to remind UEFA who Real Madrid is.”
