Barcelona chairman Joan Laporta claims two Belgian and three Dutch teams are ready to join the Super League

In an interview with RAC1, and as then subsequently reported by HLN, Barcelona chairman Joan Laporta has claimed that a combination of five Belgian and Dutch sides are prepared to join the Super League. From Belgium, these would be Anderlecht and Club Brugge, although the former denied this back in December. In the Eredivisie this would be Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord.

Laporta stated that each side who participates would be set to make €100m, and that the competition is ready to be launched as soon as the 2024/2025 season, although the 2025/2026 season is seen as more likely. This would be without any English sides, who have now come out in opposition to the league. The rest of the league would be made up from a number of teams across Europe. Laporta mentioned Inter Milan, Napoli, AS Roma, AC Milan, Marseille, Benfica, Sporting CP, Porto and every Spanish team outside Atlético Madrid.
