Some interesting details of the European Super League contracts have been leaked online.

After 12 European clubs announced on Sunday April 18, plans to set up their own league, the European super league, there was a furious backlash from fans, players, managers and even politicians which resulted in the pull out of most of the clubs

On Friday morning, April 23, American investment bank JP Morgan announced it had pulled their £3.5billion backing of the Super League.

Also on Friday, after a meeting of UEFA’s executive committee, UEFA announced that the 12 clubs involved would not face any sporting punishment for the role in the scheme.

Now German media outlet, Der Spiegel has released a few pages of the 23 year contract document, which was agreed to by the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’ clubs as well as three clubs from Italy and three from Spain before the controversial announcement last week.

It reveals that clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United, Man City and Tottenham signed a 23 year contract with the ESL and clubs who decide to pull out face a £130million ‘break-up fee’ meaning they haven’t pulled out yet.

The details include that Barcelona and Real Madrid will both receive an extra €60million (£52m) each more than their rivals while member clubs have the right to exclusively broadcast a number of matches while a £130m fee will be paid by clubs who wish to withdraw from the competition.

The leaked contract details now explains why Real Madrid and Barcelona have still not officially withdrawn from the Super League.

‘For this purpose, at the end of the first Super League season and at the end of the second Super League season, they will be paid €30m (£26m) each.’

Another part of the contract says that Super League clubs ‘will have the right to show four of their regular season games live per season “exclusively” on “core club platforms”‘, such as their website, club mobile application and TV channel.

It was also revealed that Arsenal, Bayern, Chelsea, Barcelona, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Man United, PSG, Real Madrid and Tottenham were due to earn 7.7 per cent of the initial payment given to founder members.

Joel Glazer Opens Up On Man Utd’s Transfer Plans This Summer

Published

on

Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer has insisted that the club will invest ‘meaningfully’ in the summer transfer window, and is confident about what the future holds for the Red Devils.

Man Utd are close to agreeing a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, while they have also been linked with moves for Spurs’ Harry Kane and West Ham’s Declan Rice.

Glazer, who United fans seldom hear directly from, confirmed at a recent fans’ forum that the club will invest in the playing squad this summer.

“We’re going to keep investing on the pitch, which we did last year, and we plan on doing it meaningfully this year. So, we feel that we’re in a good spot,” he said, via Man Utd’s website.

Glazer also spoke about the restructuring behind the scenes at the club, which involved John Murtough becoming the director of football with Darren Fletcher appointed as technical director, and how he is confident that the club will end their trophy drought.

“There’s been a tremendous amount of work done behind the scenes and we feel like we’re absolutely on the right track,” Glazer said. “As you all know, we’ve put John Murtough as our first football director, along with Darren Fletcher in there as well. And we feel with them together leading the way, and the work done behind the scenes, that we’re absolutely on the right track.

“Our recruitment process policies, the way we go about it has changed in the last few years, I think we’ve all seen how that has changed. We think we’re absolutely in a position for a lot of success for the future.

“Any other club that has won titles recently had years where they didn’t win the league, then they moved up, they were successful and then everybody appreciates the way their structure is set up. We think we’re on that path. We feel very good about where we are.

“But at the end of the day, we all share the same goal – to win trophies. And we will make sure that everything is being done to put us in the best position to win trophies, we’ll continue to do that. And we think we’ve set up a structure behind the scenes to deliver success.”
