Real Madrid don’t approve of the project for a new European Super League, at the least not in the format that has been proposed with three divisions of 32 teams each.

Los Blancos believe that such a competition lacks a basis to become profitable long-term, while they also know that Premier League teams have already turned against it.

The Spanish club, however, are willing to give the thumbs up to the new FIFA Club World Cup project, as they understand that it will give a huge financial and brand boost to the team.

The idea of the tournament is to bring together 24 clubs, 12 of which will be European, in a competition that will be initially played every four years.

Should the new Club World Cup prove successful, it will be held every two years.

Its introduction means that the Confederations Cup will cease to exist, as would the current Club World Cup tournament.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid have doubts about the new Final Four format of the Supercopa de Espana and the fact it’ll be played in Saudi Arabia, as the club are not eager to travel so far in the month of January in the middle of the season.
