Six Premier League clubs involved in the European Super League “preparing to call on Florentino Perez to liquidate the company behind the start of the disastrous breakaway league,” which would be a blow to the low hopes of the much-maligned project to revive
- English clubs are reportedly asking Florentino Perez to dissolve the company behind the ESL
- All six Premier League teams withdrew from the project 48 hours after the project started
- Barcelona, Juventus and Madrid are desperately clinging to the scheme
- However, reports suggest that the English sides will liquidate a company
The English clubs involved in the disastrous European Super League are reportedly planning to call on Florentino Perez to dissolve the company that was created to launch the £ 3.5 billion program.
Man United, Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs all withdrew from the controversial breakaway league 48 hours after their April announcement after loud backlash from fans, experts and the UK government.
The Italian duo AC Milan and Inter later withdrew from the project along with Spanish champions Atletico Madrid, leaving only Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus to support the conspiracy.

The owners of United, Arsenal and Liverpool are seen as the driving force behind ESL, with Madrid President Florentino Perez serving as president of the league that threatened the very existence of the UEFA Champions League.
Despite the withdrawal of nine of the 12 teams, ESPN reports that the company that was founded to introduce the ESL is still in existence.
And the six Premier League clubs that originally chose to participate in the European Super League will ask Perez to dissolve that company, although this is legally complex and far from a simple process.

If the six former rebel clubs manage to dissolve the company, it would be a hammer blow for the three clubs, which are desperately holding on to the hope of a revival of the project.
Juventus boss Andrea Agnelli remains determined to reshape European football, despite strong opposition to the idea of radically changing the current status quo.
He said: “For years I have tried to change European competitions from the inside out because the signs of the crisis were already visible before the pandemic.
“The Super League is not a coup, but a desperate alarm call for a system that is consciously or unconsciously heading for bankruptcy.
The process is considered far from easy with many legal complexities
Juventus boss Andrea Agnelli is determined to change European football
“The agreement between the founders was contingent on the prior approval of the competition by UEFA. The reaction was deafening, with abusive terms and arrogant methods, and then turned to three clubs.
“This kind of behavior will not reform football in the face of this crisis. Fortunately, I know that not everyone in UEFA feels the same way. The desire for dialogue, however, remains unchanged.
“Other sports have seen this type of change and almost everyone involved agrees that the model needs to be changed.
“Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid are determined to achieve a complete reform of the competitions, and above all in the interests of the clubs that are frightening us about this situation.”
