After last night's groundbreaking news of a European Super League, the future of this year's Champions League and Europa League could be in tatters. 

The new European Super League will include twelve of Europe's top clubs in  Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus.

All clubs have now become founders of the European Super League and there is speculation that they are all set to be removed from this year's Champions League and Europa League.

As reported by ESPN, it has been stated that UEFA's executive committee member, Jesper Moller, expects all participating clubs in the Super League to be kicked out in Friday's meeting, that will discuss the immediate future of this year's European competitions. 

"The clubs must go. I expect that to happen on Friday. Then we have to find out how to finish this season's #UCL tournament." Jesper stated. 

UEFA president, Aleksander Čeferin, aims to ban clubs in the Super League from the Champions League as soon as possible. 

The super clubs involved in the Champions League are currently Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester City. The only team that would be remaining in the competition would be Nasser Al-Khelaifi's PSG.

Should UEFA decide to expel the Super League clubs, PSG could be set to win their first-ever Champions League title. 

In addition, PSG has decided against joining the European Super League and plan to compete in the new formatted Champions League model that begins in 2024. 

The new 36 team Champions League was unanimously voted today by the UEFA European Committee, which subsequently included a vote from Al-Khelaifi, who has become in favour of the newly reformed competition. 

It does not come as a surprise that PSG has decided against joining the Super League. Al Khelaifi is the owner of BEIN Sports - an international sports broadcasting company that has invested millions of dollars into the Champions League.

With three more clubs expected to join the Super League as founding clubs, the inaugural season is set to start as soon as possible. 

PSG midfielder, Ander Herrera, spoke about the new competition posting his thoughts on social media this morning.

'If this European super league advances, those dreams are over, the illusions of the fans of the teams that are not giants of being able to win on the field competing in the best competitions will end.

'I love football and I cannot remain silent about this, I believe in an improved Champions League, but not in the rich stealing what the people created, which is nothing other than the most beautiful sport on the planet.' Herrera explained.

A Super League contract published by Der Spiegel has stated that the ESL has invited the likes of Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and PSG as founding members for the competition.

The document outlined that Bayern & Dortmund have 30 days to accept the invitation, whereas PSG have 14 days to join the competition. Why there's a difference in days between the clubs to accept the invitation, is unknown. 

The Parisien side upon hearing the news of the Super League will refuse to sell their star players. Superstars Kylian Mbappé and Neymar are expected to renew their contracts with the club soon - amid Super League club interest.
