At present, seven clubs have dissociated themselves from the Super League. But, according to Mundo Deportivo, Barça do not plan to leave the ship. For the moment.
Barça remain, until proven guilty, loyal to the Super League. According to Mundo Deportivo, the Spanish club does not plan to leave the competition wanted by the richest clubs, despite the cascading departures. Since Tuesday evening, the six English clubs (Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool) as well as Inter Milan have left the ship in the face of popular pressure. According to the Italian press, AC Milan could follow in the coming hours.
Barca reportedly continue to think Super League is a good idea
Even if Gerard Pique cracked a fiery tweet to defend the supporters on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, Barça has – for now – no intention of following the example of his English counterparts and Italians. Mundo Deportivo claim Barca executives continue to think the Super League is a good idea, both sportingly and economically. According to our Spanish colleagues, the only condition set by the club is the membership of the Socios in the project.
The information, published late Tuesday evening, should be taken with a grain of salt, as things have changed so quickly for a few hours. The Super League project, which stirred up the entire football planet, collapsed in the space of one evening. Faced with popular protests, political pressure, threats from UEFA and the rejection of many supporters, some of the clubs that initially decided to go it alone have backed down as the project seemed to be definitely on track.
