    Exclusive: Liverpool and Manchester United are in talks about a bombshell plot involving Europe’s biggest football clubs to reshape the sport’s global landscape. They want to join a new FIFA-backed tournament – and Sky News has learnt that financiers are assembling a £4.6bn funding package to assist the creation of what could become known as the European Premier League. UEFA since stated that: “The UEFA President has made it clear on many occasions that UEFA strongly opposes a Super League. The principles of solidarity, of promotion, relegation and open leagues are non-negotiable. “It is what makes European football work and the Champions League the best sports competition in the world. “UEFA and the clubs are committed to build on such strength not to destroy it to create a super league of 10, 12, even 24 clubs, which would inevitably become boring.”
