When the waters in European football were calm and the European Super League boom had dissipated, UEFA issued a statement that shook the scene again. The agency reported that it reached an agreement with the nine clubs that abandoned the project, that they will have to face some sanctions. At the same time, he left a warning to Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, who still continue with the intention of implementing the plan launched on April 18.

"In a spirit of reconciliation and for the good of European football, nine of the 12 clubs involved in the so-called 'Super League' project submitted to UEFA a 'Declaration of Club Commitment' establishing the position of clubs, including their commitment to UEFA Club Competitions, as well as national club competitions", specified the organization that regulates football in the Old Continent.

In other words, UEFA has reconciled with Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham, Liverpool, Inter, Milan and Atlético of Madrid but the clubs had to accept that they made a "mistake" and will be subject to different fines for the organism. These entities will have to donate 15 million euros to benefit "children's, youth and grassroots football in local communities across Europe, including the UK" and will lose 5 percent of UEFA revenue for one season.

In addition, if they get to participate in another private project they will have to pay a fine of 100 million of the European currency and if they do not continue to be aligned with UEFA after 2024 they will pay 50 million more.

Meanwhile, it is still not clear what the body's position will be against Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona, who still claim they intend to carry out the Super League. At the moment, warning: "In addition, and with a view to the future, UEFA has reserved all the rights to take the actions it deems appropriate against those clubs that have so far refused to resign from the so-called 'Super League'". Peace hasn't yet been signed in the Old Continent. What will happen to the future of European football?
