Manchester United Don't Think They'll Get Kicked Out Of The Premier League

Manchester United don't think that the Premier League will ban them from the competition, following the announcement of the European Super League plans.

United were joined by fellow 'Big Six' sides Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal in announcing their plans to breakaway from the Champions League and form the Super League.

They were hit with a huge backlash from fans, pundits and players alike and the Premier League were amongst the governing bodies to make a statement against the 12 European teams involved, especially those from inside its own competition.

There is talk that the clubs involved could be banned from their domestic competitions if they decide to go through with the breakaway.

However United are not convinced that the Premier League would actually throw them out, insinuating that the league needs them as much, if not more, than they need the league.

"What would the Premier League look like without those six clubs next season?" a source from the club told the Mirror.

United, along with the other clubs, believe that the league needs them to survive, and bring in as much money as it currently does, in order to keep the non big six clubs happy.

It is the same reason that the clubs believe they deserve to breakaway in the first place, as the teams who bring in the most money they should be given more money, and power, by the Champions League.

The 12 clubs, who include La Liga and Serie A's three biggest clubs, have also taken legal advice about their banning from domestic competitions.

They believe there is no basis in EU law for any action to be taken against them by domestic league's and federations.

There is also discussions, and threats, about the players who are involved in the Super League being banned from playing in UEFA and FIFA competitions.

That could potentially mean missing out on this summer's Euros for the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski and Harry Kane.

UEFA chairman Aleksander Ceferin, in a statement in which he hit out at the clubs, confirmed the European governing body was looking into those bans.
