Chelsea Reportedly 'Preparing Documentation To Request' Withdrawal From European Super League

Chelsea are on the verge of making a sensational U-turn as they 'prepare documentation to request' their withdrawal from the European Super League, according to stunning reports.


Now, BBC Sport's Dan Roan reports that Chelsea have prepared documents to 'request withdrawing from the ESL.'

"I understand Chelsea are now preparing documentation to request withdrawing from the ESL," Roan tweeted.

Footage has since emerged of Chelsea fans breaking out into loud cheers outside Stamford Bridge amid protests over the club's involvement in The Super League.

Chelsea legend Petr Cech was spotted reassuring furious fans protesting outside Stamford Bridge ahead of the match with Brighton.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who is the first chairman of The Super League, insisted that the competition was created to "save football."

He told El Chiringuito: "We are doing this to save football at this critical moment.

"If we continue with the Champions League, there is less and less interest and then it's over.

"The new format which starts in 2024 is absurd. In 2024, we are all dead."

Perez even hinted that matches in The Super League could be shorter, saying that they "have to change something if we want football to stay alive."
