Real Madrid deny report over plans to join Premier League

14 Aug 2021

On Saturday, Mundo Deportivo reported that Madrid’s myriad conflicts with LaLiga chief Javier Tebas have led club president Florentino Pérez to consider attempting to join an overseas league, with the English Premier League his preferred choice.

The Catalan sports daily said Tebas’ staunch opposition to the European Super League and LaLiga’s recent deal with the CVC Capital Partners investment fund have proved “the last straw” for Pérez.

In response to Mundo Deportivo’s report, Real Madrid released a statement later on Saturday branding the claim “completely false, absurd and impossible”.

“Given the information published today by the newspaper Mundo Deportivo, in which it says that our club studied the possibility of moving from LaLiga to the Premier, Real Madrid wants to assert that this information is completely false, absurd and impossible and it only intends to disturb, once more, the day to day of our club,” the statement said.
