The Premier League ‘Big Six’ (Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham) could become part of a new-look Champions League.
UEFA has reportedly come up with its own plan to fend off any breakaway with the threat of a possible European Super League never far from the table.
According to The Sun the plans unveiled to the top flight elite would open the way for Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham to all share millions in extra Euro revenue from 2024.
In the meantime, the rest of the Premier League sides would be required to finish in the top four to qualify.
The report goes onto say that European football’s governing body is now working with the European Club Association to find a format acceptable to the biggest clubs.
The biggest clubs in the wealthiest nations are set to benefit the most, with England potentially being allowed up to six sides in the new-look competition – plus FA Cup winners in the Europa League and Carabao Cup holders in the new third-tier Europa Conference League.
