- AC Milan as well as Inter joined ten other elite clubs to form the European Super League
- The Italian clubs have now announced their willingness to withdraw from the rebel competition
- All six English Premier League clubs initially involved with the idea have all officially withdrawn
Italian clubs AC Milan as well as Inter Milan have indicated their willingness to leave the newly-formed European Super League according to Italian journalist Romano Fabrizio.
This is coming barely hours after Premier League clubs who were involved in the breakaway competition announced their withdrawal.
No fewer than 12 football clubs who announced their breakaway competition left their positions at the UEFA and the European Clubs Association (ECA).
The clubs consist of Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, Manchester City, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Manchester United, Juventus, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and AC Milan.
Around 1,000 fans gathered outside Chelsea's Stamford Bridge home ground before their game against Brighton on Tuesday, April 20, to protest their involvement, a tie which ended 0-0.
Also, Premier League rivals Manchester City indicated their willingness to withdraw from the rebel league and the Blues are also 'preparing documentation' to request withdrawal.
In what will be a potentially fatal blow to the £4.6billion scheme, Etihad chiefs decided they could no longer be party to the plans that have rocked football to its very foundation.
The withdrawal of the six from the tournament already spells doom for a tournament that was projected to start at the start of next season.
The Football Association and UEFA have since lauded the clubs for rescinding their initial plans.
With more clubs announcing their withdrawal, the European Super League idea is believed to have officially collapsed.
Meanwhile, embattled manager Jose Mourinho has finally reacted to his sudden ouster from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.
This came just six days to their Carabao Cup final against Man City as it was gathered that Spurs decided to dispense the tactician after just over a season and a half in charge.
They are in seventh position on the Premier League standings and at risk of missing out on a place in the top four.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Liverpool missed out on a chance to displace West Ham United and Chelsea to move into the fouth position on the Premier League standings.
Jurgen Klopp's side played a 1-1 with Leeds United away from home on Monday night, April 19 to set up a tantalising last six matches in the English topflight.
But the Reds needed to battle so hard against the Peacocks at Elland Road to improve their chances of finishing in top four.
