Saudi Arabia Targets Juventus and Barcelona for Potential Super League Reboot

June 20, 2023

The landscape of global football is poised to undergo a seismic shift. The driving force behind this transformation could be teams from Saudi Arabia, who are ambitiously contemplating a revival of the Super League. \

Among their prime targets for recruitment are Juventus and Barcelona, two prestigious teams that have consistently demonstrated resilience amidst tumultuous times.

The Super League, a contentious breakaway football competition first announced in April 2021, witnessed a premature collapse due to staunch opposition from fans and key stakeholders.

But despite this setback, the desire for the League remains alive, particularly among three stalwarts of European football – Barcelona, Juventus, and Real Madrid.

Teams from Saudi Arabia are now emerging as pioneers, leading the efforts to resurrect the Super League concept.

According to Tuttosport, these visionaries aspire to establish a league that could potentially see participation from teams like Barcelona and Juventus.

This daring venture has UEFA on tenterhooks, given the significant influence and financial strength of the Public Investment Fund (PIF), which owns the four largest clubs in the Saudi Pro League.

The revitalization of the Super League brings an unsettling reality for UEFA.

The potential withdrawal of major teams from UEFA competitions in favor of the Super League could upset the balance of power in European football.

This concern has been amplified by the potential ban Barcelona and Juventus face amid the ongoing Negreira case.

Similarly, Juventus, currently grappling with the repercussions of a potential ban from UEFA competitions and a recent penalty in Serie A, might see this as an opportunity to recoup and establish dominance on a new platform.

Florentino Perez, President of Real Madrid, played a pivotal role in orchestrating the original Super League initiative.

He asserted that the creation of the League was a necessary step to ‘save’ football. Given the absence of Real Madrid in the current list of teams, the club’s involvement in future discussions could be crucial.
