Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool have all been in discussions to leave the UEFA Champions League competition to join the top secret, European Super League.
Exclusive reports from The Sun suggest that all of the above sides met with American billionaire Stephen Ross at London's Dorchester Hotel on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of joining this 'European Super League', which would see the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and other top European clubs compete.
The Super League would see England's best join with top clubs around Europe to create a 'super' league. This competition would cut out the risks of teams missing out on millions if they failed to reach the UEFA Champions League.
For example, Manchester United are set to face loss of revenue as they are set to miss out on the Champions League this season. The Super League would change things up dramatically in that sense.

United's vice-chairman Ed Woodward, Liverpool's Ian Ayre, Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis, Manchester City's chief executive Ferran Soriano and Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck all emerged from the meeting earlier.
American billionaire and owner of the Miami Dolphins Stephen Ross hopes to have an agreement to launch the league shortly.
A league featuring the likes of Barcelona, AC Milan, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Olympiacos and others? Is it a good idea? Have your say in the comments...
