It has also been reported that a new league would be thrown out under European law over current competition laws in each country.

European Leagues aligned itself with UEFA on the matter and called for competitive balance in club football to be protected, with the importance of domestic football to fans and national associations also highlighted.

Football Supporters' Federation chair Malcolm Clarke said: "Yet again there is a far-reaching proposal being drawn up by big clubs whose primary interest is making as much money as possible without any consultation with fans at club, national or European level".

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is considering legal action over a report the German giants are involved in plans to launch an 18-team European "Super League" in 2021.

It remains to be seen how the proposed European Super League would function due to an agreement between UEFA and the European Club Association that runs until 2022, the year after the proposed start of the new division.

Der Spiegel says it has seen a "binding term sheet" sent on 22 October 2018 by the firm Key Capital Partners to Real Madrid's president, Florentino Pérez, suggesting that the La Liga club would be joined by Barcelona, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Milan and Paris Saint-Germain in the European Super League, and would not face relegation for 20 years.

"The Leagues supports the European sports model based on a pyramid structure where the mechanisms of promotion and relegation and the sporting merits of clubs are at the core of any competition".

"Proposals for a closed Super League will have serious and lasting implications for the long-term sustainability of professional football in Europe", it added.

The body representing football clubs in Europe - European Leagues - said on Tuesday it strongly opposed the creation of a Super League for a select group of elite clubs.

According to the source, the government was unaware of any talks between the continent's top clubs until Der Spiegel's claims emerged. We will check this over the next few days with our lawyers. "The fact is, no European club has every approached the topic of a Super League", he told Sky.
