That hasn’t stopped Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus from digging their heels in on the matter, despite the fact that such a stance could lead to huge sanctions from the governing body, UEFA.

Indeed, on Monday afternoon, UEFA tweeted a very strongly worded statement aimed at the three European heavyweights, leaving them in no doubt that they intend to fight any decisions that may fall in favour of the Super League.

It’s already become a real game of brinksmanship at this point, and a ‘call my bluff’ for the highest-level of the game.

Given the financial problems all three clubs are experiencing at the moment, can they genuinely afford to be left out of European competition?
