Real Madrid boss planning to destroy English Premier League

Posted By: Staff

London, July 5 (ANI): Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is drawing up plans that would destroy the English Premier League in its current form.

Perez wants a Super League put in place that could see England's top four turn their back on the Premier League to play the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona every week.

He said: "What we need to work out with UEFA is a European Super League that guarantees that all the top teams play each other all the time - something that does not happen in the current Champions League."

Perez's Real revolution this summer has already seen Cristiano Ronaldo move to Madrid for 80 million pounds, News of the World reported.he Spanish giants' huge pulling power also saw Chelsea miss out on Brazilian target Kaka.

Now Perez wants to sit down with European football's governing body and effectively asset-strip the English league.

The plan is to maximise TV revenue and sponsorship deals for Europe's big clubs and would threaten the future of the smallest sides in the Premier League.

Asked if he would put his full weight behind a Super League he added: "Yes, but without abandoning national leagues." (ANI)
