Juventus sent an official letter to Barcelona and Real Madrid in which they communicated their intention to start a discussion on the possibility of exiting the SuperLeague project. The black and white club, during Andrea Agnelli's management, was one of the most active clubs in giving life to the idea that infuriated UEFA.
The doubts related to the possible exclusion from the European cups next season, by the highest continental football body, as a consequence of the troubles with the Italian sports justice, would have led Juve to evaluate a different position on the matter and to officially inform the two clubs still involved in the project.
The European Court of Justice from Luxembourg will have to decide on the accusation made by the three remaining clubs in the project against FIFA and Uefa for illegal monopoly. So far, the advocate general of the European Court of Justice Athanasios Rantos called upon to give a non-binding opinion on the matter has expressed a fairly strong opinion firmly in favor of UEFA and the European sporting model, but the definitive sentence is still missing.
An initiative anticipated today by the Spanish media and confirmed in the evening by Juventus itself, with an official note.
