More information continues to filter about how the European Super League came to fruition and the clubs who pushed for it most.
La Repubblica (via MilanNews) writes how there are 12 big European clubs who will become the founders of the new competitions. Juventus president Andrea Agnelli, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and the Glazer family – owners of Manchester United – were and have been the main supporters of the project since last summer.
Then there is an umbrella of unspecified American investment funds, and it has since come out that JP Morgan will be bankrolling the league. A central role was played by Elliott Management – the owners of Milan – and with CEO Ivan Gazidis who has a past in the MLS.
News about Barcelona is awaited, as with Bartomeu the Catalan side were ready to strongly support the Super League, but now with Laporta at the helm their membership has become a lot less prominent in terms of talks in person.
