PREM GIANTS’ £310m EACH TO JOIN SUPER LEAGUE
Premier League clubs agreeing to join a new European Super League were in line for a £310million payment, it has been claimed.
New leaked documents have emerged amid Fifa’s attempt to kill off the proposal.
According to The Times, six English clubs were being eyed up as founder members of the Super League.
This is most likely to have been the ‘Big Six’ of Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal – even though the latter two teams are currently placed eighth and tenth respectively.
A huge £3.1billion fund was being formulated by the competition’s organisers, which was to be split between the 15 founder clubs.
The payment, ranging from £89m to £310m, was reportedly described as an ‘infrastructure grant’ to spend on stadiums, training facilities and account for lost pandemic revenue.
Liverpool, United, AC Milan and Real Madrid have been named as clubs involved in planning the Super League, with the Spanish giants’ president Florentino Perez a vocal advocate.
Barcelona are one club who have already signed up for proposals, according to former chief Josep Maria Bartomeu.
