The Premier League and the ‘Big Six’ clubs are close to agreeing on the punishment they would face for trying to join the European Super Eagle.
Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham withdrew from the controversial break-up plans just days after they were announced.
His decision came after the outrage of the entire football world.
The six English clubs would have joined Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atlético de Madrid, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Juventus in a rebellious European league.
Now they will face punishment for their participation in the plans. But it will be in the form of fines rather than point deductions.
The Big Six are understood to want a punishment similar to that imposed by UEFA last month, which saw each fined around £ 1.5 million.
The money would be donated to children’s and grassroots football across the continent.
