Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid are still working for the Super League project and are reportedly taking legal action against UEFA and FIFA, accusing the two Federations of breaking the ‘monopoly’ rule.

The breakaway competition collapsed after protests across Europe and there are only three parties remaining of the 12 founding clubs, which included Inter and Milan.

UEFA was threatening with sanctions and punishment for the clubs involved in the Super League, including possible exclusions from the European club competitions.

Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona are not giving up and are pushing for a change in the world of football.

The three clubs have, according to Financial Times, accused UEFA and FIFA of breaking the competition rules of the European Union, where the goal is to dismantle a monopoly which blocks the creation of rival competitions.

The newspaper has revealed a company in Spain that represents the clubs of the Super League will ask the Court of Justice to judge whether UEFA can continue to act as a regulator capable of sanctioning clubs, but also as a participant, benefiting from the organisation of tournaments such as the Champions League.
