England’s five biggest clubs have reportedly entered secret talks regarding a potential European Super League.
Several reports indicates executives from Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool met with American billionaire and sports team owner Stephen Ross at a hotel in London on Tuesday.
In what has been described as a ‘clandestine meeting’ at the Dorchester Hotel in Park Lane, chiefs from the Premier League giants came together to discuss the possibility of a breakaway league which would end any uncertainty of failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
Ross, who owns NFL franchise Miami Dolphins, is reportedly the brains behind the operation which would see England’s top teams join forces with Europe’s elite to form a super continental competition.
If successful, the mastermind of the international Champions Cup would pull off one of the biggest breakaways in sporting history which would spell the end of the current Champions League setup.
United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis, Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck, City chief Ferran Soriano and Liverpool CEO Ian Ayre were all in attendance and were snapped together outside the hotel following the conclusion of the meeting.
