Manchester United along with five other English sides involved in the European Super League have reached a combined £22million financial settlement with the Premier League. United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea announced themselves as founding members of the tournament in April.

However, after 48 hours of protests from fans, pundits and players, and opposition from UEFA, FIFA, the Premier League, and even the British Government, all six clubs eventually withdrew.

Any club which signs up for a similar project in the future will be liable to a penalty of £25million, as well as a 30-point deduction. The money will go to community projects and grassroots football – not to any other Premier League clubs.

The final settlement is considerably smaller than the heavy points deduction and £15million fine per club that was initially proposed by the Premier League last month.
