Premier League ‘close to agreement’ on penalty for failed European Super League gambit.

Premier League ‘close to agreement’ on penalty for failed European Super League gambit.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are set to be penalised for their embroilment in the Super League breakaway plans which triggered a intense resentment.

The Premier League and the so-called ‘Big Six’ were reportedly imminent to an arrangement on the punishment for the European Super League debacle late on Tuesday night.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham all pulled out of the dubious breakaway plans within days of them being announced, after a furious backlash from across the football world.

The six clubs would have joined Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Juventus in a rebel European league, sparking widespread anxieties over a ‘closed shop’ competition.

Demonstrations were held outside the grounds of the clubs involved after the European Super League (ESL) was announced back in April, with the reaction from fans sparking a U-turn from the English clubs.

They will face punishment for their involvement in the plans – but it will be in the form of fines rather than points deductions, according to the Daily Mail.

The publication further reveals there have been ‘heated discussions’ over the size of the likely fines, and about where the money should go.

It is claimed that the Big Six fancied a penalty similar to that dished out by UEFA last month – which saw each fined around £1.5million, with the money going to children’s and grassroots football across the continent.

The clubs also agreed to suffer five percent of the revenues they would have gained from European club competitions for one campaigning – amounting to a further £3.5m to £5.5m.

And the Big Six are reportedly awaiting for a similar punishment from the Premier League, with the fines going to community causes preferably than rival clubs.

Some clubs are said to be jostling for more rigid punishments, but talks are ongoing aimed at achieving a compromise after a source said the ‘fraught process’ had previously been on the verge of collapse.
