The creation of the new Super League with 12 of the most powerful clubs in Europe as protagonists generated a shock in the football of the Old Continent. With the announcement that Milan, Arsenal, Atlético Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Inter, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur signed for the assembly of a new tournament that will compete with the local leagues and the Champions League, the debate was opened on what will happen with the already established competitions.
Amid strong complaints from fans, other European clubs from different leagues and important personalities in the field of sport, there would be two of these 12 teams that would be doubting whether to continue with the original plan that appointed the current president of the Real Madrid Florentino Pérez as its first starter.
According to the English newspaper The Guardian, both Chelsea and Manchester City are analyzing the possibility of reversing their decision and ceasing to be founding clubs of the new European Football Super League. The British media indicates that at least half of the participants in this alliance are committed to continuing at all costs, while the others joined the project due to different factors.
One of the reasons why the institutions chose to sign the agreement was because they will receive a substantial amount of money, much greater than what they receive today. The other, in which the two Premier League teams that will play the Champions League semifinals would be aligned, would be in line with the fact that they did not want to miss out on any new economic or sporting benefit.
In this same sense, The Times, another of the most important newspapers in the United Kingdom, also referred to the possible scenario that one of the English clubs - it gave no indication of what it would be - could back down and would be having emergency meetings to define his steps to follow after the declaration against the new league by its fans.
