The Spanish government has voiced its express opposition to the new European Super League and called on the breakaway clubs to negotiate with Uefa and LaLiga and reach some form of compromise.
Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are among the 12 clubs to have announced the formation of a rather lucrative breakaway league that would be almost entirely closed to other teams and undermine the existing structures of European football as we know it.

UEFA, along with the federations and leagues in England, Spain and Italy, has said teams and players that play in the new league would not be allowed to participate in other domestic and international competitions.
According to the statement, Spain’s Minister for Culture and Sport, Jose Manuel Rodriguez Uribes, spoke with the presidents of Uefa, the Spanish football federation and Liga on Monday, and the presidents of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
