The Super League is crumbling less than 48 hours after its announcement, as Barcelona won’t ratify it without the all-clear from Assembly members, while Chelsea and Manchester City are pulling out.

There are also suggestions from Ben Jacobs and others that Atletico Madrid too are ready to reconsider.

The deal was only confirmed on Sunday night at 11pm UK time, midnight on continental Europe.

The Super League is crumbling less than 48 hours after its announcement, as Barcelona won’t ratify it without the all-clear from Assembly members, while Chelsea and Manchester City are pulling out.

There are also suggestions from Ben Jacobs and others that Atletico Madrid too are ready to reconsider.

The deal was only confirmed on Sunday night at 11pm UK time, midnight on continental Europe.

Now there are multiple reports from Britain, including The Times, The Telegraph, The Sun and The Athletic, that both Chelsea and Manchester City have decided to pull out of their commitment to the Super League.

According to TV3 Catalunya, Barcelona President Joan Laporta assured he will not ratify their adherence to the Super League until it has been given the all-clear by the Assembly of Socios.

It is very, very unlikely that they would vote in favour of what seems to have been greeted with universal negativity by the supporters, coaches and players of the 12 founding clubs.

The founding clubs are Juventus, Inter, Milan, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool.
