Since Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Manchester City are members of the breakaway European Super League, they could be barred from competing in the 2020-21 UEFA Champions League semifinals.
Along with the three clubs mentioned above, Manchester United, Liverpool, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, Inter, AC Milan, Tottenham Hotspur, and Arsenal declared the launch of the European Super League on Sunday.
Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are in the final four of the ongoing 2020-21 UCL.
According to Jesper Moller, a member of the UEFA executive committee and the president of the Danish Football Association, the first three are likely to be banned from the current edition of Europe’s premier football competition.
Aleksander Ceferin, the president of UEFA, launched a scathing assault on the European Super League, emphasising that the entire football world is opposed to the project. The current situation for Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Manchester City has been made even more complicated by UEFA’s stance.
On Tuesday, April 27, Real Madrid and Chelsea will face off in the first semifinal of the 2020-21 UEFA Champions League, while Manchester City will face PSG on April 28.
It remains to be observed if Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Manchester City will continue in the current UCL season.
