Inter Milan will increase the offer for Acuna, Portugal will ask for no less than 15 million euros
"The European giants are never satisfied with the direction of football, and the Super League is a big threat they can use at will." Co-author of "Clubs: How the Premier League Became the Richest, Most Disruptive Deal in Sport" Josh Robinson said, "This tool [Super League] is so convenient and allows them to direct the game to their expectations. It is not deadly, but a very practical weapon. They can use this to improve the league. Show off your power."
With the outbreak of the new crown epidemic, club boards across Europe have become more and more panic. The loss of revenue from behind-the-scenes games has undoubtedly been a devastating financial blow for many clubs. Taking Manchester United as an example, the loss of ticket revenue alone is as high as 100 million pounds, and the failure to enter the Champions League knockout is even more terrible. That's what makes the Super League attractive to European giants.Kieren Maguire, a football finance expert, said: "This time the Premier League poses an even bigger threat as the outbreak of the coronavirus has made the European giants' need for certainty at an unprecedented level. Look at the huge losses announced by so many clubs. : Roma, Atletico, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund. They all panicked. So everyone turned their attention to the Champions League, because the biggest money in football is in European competitions."
Whether on or off the field, qualification for the Champions League has become the main goal of the competition for various clubs. In the domestic and European competitions, the distribution plan of broadcast revenue and event bonuses has been tilted in favor of the giants, and the distribution method of the Champions League qualifications is also increasingly trending towards the five major leagues. However, the nature of sports events is still unpredictable. Despite the huge disparity between the rich and the poor, football events still have the ability to create unpopular and unexpected developments. For example, Atlanta has been in the top 16 of the Champions League for two consecutive seasons, while the 7-time Champions League winner AC Milan has since In 2014, he did not appear in this competition again.KPMG's version of the UEFA Champions League top 16 teams are worth, as the name suggests, the so-called European Super League obviously uses the existing UEFA Champions League as a reference. Once the Super League is established, it will undoubtedly be a huge threat to the Champions League. Although the existing UEFA Champions League is advertised as an "elite league", due to the large number of participating teams, the strength of the teams is uneven, and some games have low gold content.
In contrast, if the European Super League, which is produced by elite teams, is successfully born, it is bound to gain greater exposure. More importantly, for the clubs participating in the formation, the clubs will have a greater say in the schedule and the distribution of league bonuses, and the benefits obtained will also rise.Previously, according to a number of foreign media disclosures, the European Super League plans to consist of 18 giant clubs, 15 of which are resident teams, namely the Premier League's Big6, La Liga's Real Madrid, Barcelona Atletico, and Serie A's Juventus and Milan. Bayern and Dortmund in the Bundesliga, Paris in the Ligue 1. The remaining three teams may be produced in other teams in Ligue 1, Russian Super League, Portuguese Super League, Dutch Super League, and Serie A. Once the $6 billion (about 40.1 billion yuan) sponsorship funds are in place, the event can start as early as the 2022/23 season. The "World Sports News" even broke out that FIFA even participated in discussing the launch plan of the Super League with the major European giants.
Once the European Super League is finally formed, it will greatly change the existing football ecology, which is obviously what UEFA does not want to see. UEFA President Ceferin said in a previous interview, "I think this is the most boring plan in the world. At the beginning, it may only be the idea of two or three teams, or it may be a media hype. But this plan will destroy football. industry."UEFA President Ceferin's European G14 league and the domestic G7 revolution have all failed. In fact, the idea of a European Super League can be traced back to 23 years ago. In 1998, 14 European clubs, including Real Madrid, Barcelona, AC Milan, Juventus, Inter Milan, Manchester United, Liverpool, Bayern, Dortmund, Marseille, Paris, Ajax, Eindhoven and Porto, secretly co-operated in Brussels, Belgium. Make big plans. Trying to get more profit from the Champions League by putting pressure on UEFA.
