Liverpool and Man United in talks regarding 'European Premier League'

Man United Liverpool in talks to join new European super league- report

United declined to comment on the report and Liverpool did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Premier League giants are reportedly involved in talks over the creation of a new competition, which it is claimed has the backing of the sport's world governing body Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Sky said as many as five English clubs could join the new "European Premier League".

The report added the financiers are looking to raise a $6 billion funding package to kick-start the new tournament.

It has been reported that the league would be made up of 18 teams, with fixtures being played during the regular European season.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has been approached by PA for comment.

A Federation Internationale de Football Association spokesperson told Reuters in an emailed statement: "FIFA does not wish to comment and participate in any speculation about topics which come up every now and then and, for which, institutional structures and regulatory frameworks are well in place at national, European and global level".

The country is registering almost 180 virus cases per 100,000 people every week, with 22,591 total new cases Wednesday. By attending the party while waiting for her test result she ended up infecting a number of others.

The EPL would bring together Europe's top clubs in a single tournament, which would ultimately replace the Champions League as the continent's top club prize.

"The principles of solidarity, of promotion, relegation and open leagues are non-negotiable", a UEFA statement said.

"The authors of that idea - if they really exist, because there is nobody actually defending it - not only show a total ignorance of the organisation and customs of European and world football, but also a serious ignorance of the audiovisual rights markets", he said. He had previous year declared that there would be no super league as long as he was the president of UEFA.

A European Super League has always been touted as the way for major clubs to further increase their revenue streams, but it would come at the cost of the Champions League and national leagues. UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has also been a strong opponent of a breakaway super league. The UEFA has continuously voiced against it and following the report from the German magazine, the European League Group (EL), which represents 25 domestic leagues including the Premier League, had come out against any such plan.

Reuters report UEFA is working closely to redesign the Champions League from 2024.

"It's not a promise, it's a fact", he added.

The proposals were rejected at a Premier League clubs meeting last week, and described as "a distraction at best" by Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden from the pressing need for the Premier League and EFL to agree a financial rescue package amid the coronavirus pandemic.
