The English Premier League and the tournament’s ‘Big Six’ clubs are on the verge of reaching an agreement on the sanction to be imposed on them for attempting to join the European Super League, according to the Daily Mail.
Recall that the EPL’s six big clubs, including Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspurs, all had to pull out of controversial breakaway plans days after their announcement,
Their decision to step down follows a series of outrages in the football world.
Before retiring, the six big English clubs had planned to join Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Juventus in a rebellious European league.
Reports have now revealed that they will be punished for their involvement in the plans. But it will be in the form of fines rather than point deductions.
A report suggests the Big Six want a sanction similar to that imposed on them by UEFA last month, which fined them around £ 1.5million.
As with UEFA, the money would be donated to children’s football and grassroots football across the continent.
