Top clubs planning breakaway league, Football News & Top Stories

Real Madrid and Barcelona have been listed as part of a planned breakaway Super League competition

The result means Jurgen Klopp's men have gone unbeaten in their opening 11 Premier League matches for the first time since the 2007-08 season.

The documents obtained by Der Spiegel allege that this would allow the new league to avoid running afoul of European law by not closing off the competition entirely.

Klopp then went on to claim Federation Internationale de Football Association and UEFA's approach to proposed competition revamps are flawed because they do not seek sufficient input from clubs and other stakeholders.

The magazine also said that Bayern three years ago briefly looked into the legal aspects of not only breaking away from European competition but also the domestic Bundesliga, in connection with past Super League speculation.

Further details on the Super League from the documents have also been released. But their monopoly in a weaker league has affected their chances of competing in the Champions League as a result and they haven't reached the final since 2013.

Jose Mourinho slams Man City on alleged FFP breaches
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has ripped into Manchester City for breaching the FFP regulations laid down by the UEFA. It was supposedly used as a vehicle to disguise payments to players for the right to use their image in marketing campaigns.

An Oct. 22 email to Real Madrid from Madrid-based investment firm Key Capital Partners included a "binding term sheet" of 11 clubs and five "initial guests" to form a breakaway, private league, according to multiple news outlets that received the document among thousands of others from the "Football Leaks" whistleblower platform.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, Milan, PSG and Bayern will be the founders of the Super League who would not face relegation for 20 years.

One senior Whitehall source said: "Government hasn't been told about any of this, which suggests the Premier League has also been kept in the dark".

Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Olympique Marseille, Inter Milan and Roma would join as invited teams who could be relegated into a second tier which is also being discussed.

The documents also state that a decision will be taken in November 2018.

With Europe's elite planning to break into a European Super League, Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp has laughed at the idea of the competition and expressed his happiness with football as it is.
