The supposed reasoning behind it was that a number of the biggest clubs felt that UEFA owed them more money and more money, and if they weren't given it, they would start their own league.

As per reports, big clubs in Europe were working on a breakaway league.

The newspaper claims 16 teams - 11 "founders" along with five "initial guests" - went behind the backs of their respective football associations and domestic opponents in an effort to create the elite competition.

Die Roten, along with the other 10 "founding clubs" - per the document - would register a company in Spain to "market, organise and execute" what would be called a European Super League, an entity under their full control.

The 11 founder clubs will be guaranteed membership for 20 years, whilst there will also be a second league under the European Super League.

Before the Premier League was formed to try and ensure certain clubs got a lot more money than the rest, the idea of a European Superleague was regularly voiced.

Series creator Vince Gilligan is said to be overseeing the project, but that's about all that's being reported right now. It seems as though AMC wants to create giant spinoffs of their most famous projects, and I am not buying it so far.

The Spiegel report said that on October 22, Madrid-based Key Capital Partners sent an email to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez including a document entitled "Draft of an Agreement of the Sixteen" which included a 13-page "binding term sheet" for the 11 clubs listed as "founders".

City have since come out and denied the allegations, claiming 'the attempt to damage the club's reputation is organised and clear. UEFA is not mentioned in the draft.

Such a league would spell the end for the Champions League in its current form, Der Spiegel said in its report based on investigations by the Football Leaks platform and made available to the European Investigative Collaborations (EIC) reporting group. No doubt that if this European Superleague did happen, we would see an ever increasing number of those games played in other countries, no matter what the fans of competing clubs would say.

Manchester United also declined to respond to the Der Spiegel article, while Sky Sports News has attempted to contact Chelsea.

"I have clearly said that Borussia Dortmund would not leave the Bundesliga for any competition on this planet", said Dortmund's CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.
