Florentino Perez says PSG weren’t invited to Super League as he slams "bulls***"

European Super League chairman Florentino Perez has said PSG were not invited to join the new breakaway division.

Twelve founding members are involved with six of them coming from the Premier League, three from La Liga and the remaining trio from Italy’s Serie A.

German clubs are not expected to join though reports suggested that some French teams would soon be involved.

Many felt that last season’s Champions League runners-up PSG would join forces with the other dozen for the much criticised European Super League.

Though Perez, who is also president at Real Madrid, says the French giants have not been spoken to.

"We have not invited PSG yet, we're gonna talk with many clubs and explicate them about the Super League project,” Perez told El Chiringuito.

“If Bayern refuses to join it won't cancel, don't worry. We also will hire some of the best referees in the world.

"PSG were NOT invited, as of today. We haven't even spoken to German clubs. We are now 12 clubs, we want to become 15 clubs.

“If PSG and Bayern Munich refuse, the Super League competition will not be canceled. This is bulls***.

"If we can't find an agreement with UEFA, we will NOT back down. If they want to wait for 2024 to make the reform, they can wait. We're not waiting for anyone because we need the Super League.”

There are suggestions that those involved in the ESL will immediately be eliminated from the Champions League.
