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

Europe football 'Super League' plan leaked

"One of the 16 clubs named in the document is FC Bayern Munich".

"I'm completely fine with league football and how it is at the moment".

The documents obtained by Der Spiegel, however, claim that this would allow the new league to avoid running afoul of European law by not ending the competition entirely.

But what is the European Super League, what teams will be involved, and how will it affect the Champions League?

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.

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

However, Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who's also the chairman of the European Club Association, rejected the documents and said his club was committed to playing in the Bundesliga.

A number of legal issues have stalled the formation of the league but UEFA had attempted to quell such an uprising by agreeing to reform the Champions League by 2021 (to coincide with the new rights period) to favour top clubs.

Clubs-founders of the super League will be Bayern Munich, real Madrid, Barcelona "Manchester United", Juventus, Arsenal, PSG, Chelsea, Manchester city, Liverpool and AC Milan.

Also, according to Untold Arsenal, there will be an additional set of guest clubs seemingly elected each year based on performance within their own national league: Atlético Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Marseille, Internazionale and Roma fall into this category, thus making a league of 16 teams.

Eleven of the founder clubs would be guaranteed immunity from relegation for a period of 20 years from the start of the league.

The documents also state that a decision will be taken in November 2018.

In their report, they assert that Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge had "betrayed" the smaller clubs around Europe by being involved in plans to undermine the Champions League, a competition that is becoming increasingly hard to reach for teams from lesser footballing nations.
