Uefa has opened a disciplinary investigation into three top European clubs, and the clubs are Juventus, Barcelona, and Real Madrid. The investigation is about their involvement in the proposed European Super League. The three clubs were part of the 12 founding members of the breakaway league, which later did not occur.
According to information from the investigation committee, it was said that there are other nine clubs involved but they all renounced the project but the likes of Barcelona, Juventus and Real Madrid have refused to do so. Uefa says its disciplinary inspectors will look at a “potential violation” of its legal framework by the trio.
