Juventus Commence Process to Leave the Super League

Juventus announced to have opened discussions with Barcelona and Real Madrid concerning their exit from the Super League following some anticipatory rumors coming from Spain. The process will take a few weeks but should ultimately result in their departure.

A22 Sports Management, the company that backs the breakaway competition, quickly replied, suggesting to have “irrefutable and unequivocal evidence of UEFA’s threats” against the Bianconeri to force them to bow out. The club denied them in its official statement. The Serie A giants risk being banned due to their recent point deduction. According to Relevo (via FootMercato), the international body warned them of a looming five-year suspension.

Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, the head of the FIGC, the Italian FA, Gabriele Gravina, contributed to appeasing the relationship between UEFA and Juventus, which had been severed with the creation of the Super League. A ruling of the European Court of Justice will determine the fate of the controversial cup later this year.

The Old Lady could contain the damage of a possible penalty thanks to his olive branch toward the governing body. A one-year punishment, which would technically derive from violations of the Financial Fair Play, would see them excluded from the European Conference League next season.

Our Take on Juventus and the Super League

It was long overdue, and it should have been done shortly after the ousting of Andrea Agnelli. Instead, the delay is a bad look for both parties. Due to its timing, it seems like a bargaining chip in a coerced negotiation rather than genuine.
