Football leaks exposes Premier League clubs at heart of planned European Superleague

Football Leaks: Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal And Manchester City Allegedly Involved In Plans For A European Super League

Bayern Munich have issued a statement addressing claims from German newspaper Der Spiegel that detail plans among Europe's elite clubs to form a breakaway competition, separate from the Champions League.

Among them should be "real-Madrid", "Barcelona" "Manchester United", "Chelsea", "Arsenal", "Manchester city", "Liverpool", "Paris St Germain", "Juventus", "Milan" and "Bavaria". To begin, the founders then would be joined by five other guest clubs - Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan, Marseille and Roma.

According to Der Spiegel, a consultant has already presented the plans to Real Madrid in October, noting that 16 of Europe's biggest clubs plan to sign a letter of intent later in November expressing their desire to participate in the tournament.

The documents obtained by Der Spiegel allege that this would allow the new league to avoid running afoul of European law by not closing off the competition entirely. UEFA said it could not comment on specific cases due to confidentiality obligations, while Federation Internationale de Football Association did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

In addition, the league would consist of 11 founding members and five guest teams, with the founders immune to relegation and guaranteed spots in the league for 20 years.

"The document even lists the ownership stakes held by the individual clubs in the joint European Super League company, with Real Madrid holding 18.77 percent, Barcelona 17.61 percent, Manchester United 12.58 percent and Bayern Munich 8.29 percent".

Wayne Rooney is coming out of retirement for one last England match
His last worldwide appearance was as captain in a 3-0 win over Scotland at Wembley in a 2018 World Cup qualifier in November 2016. It's fitting that the match will be against the United States of America and I hope that both sets of fans enjoy the game".

"The attempt to damage the club's reputation is organised and clear".

The Football Leaks documents referenced the meeting in 2016, however nothing substantial ever came from the talks - though the emails show that the idea of a European Super League have been far from axed.

"I absolutely and clearly reject this", Rummenigge declared.

Any such move could doom UEFA's Champions League and impact the respective clubs' domestic competitions.

Watzke also said Dortmund under no circumstances would leave the German Bundesliga, but beyond that, the club would "keep all its options open".
