Manchester City, and the other eleven clubs who have confirmed their participation in the European Super League, have not signed any “contractually binding” agreements about participating in the competition, according to The Athletic.
The website claims that all of the teams involved have agreements “in principle” and “memorandums of understanding” which will make things easier to get out of if opposition to the new tournament becomes too fierce.
The Premier League, the FA, the UK Government and UEFA have all spoken out to oppose the plans, but at this stage, City and the other five English teams have been standing firm.
There have been reports that the Citizens could be punished, in terms of their participation in this season’s Champions League, but it has since been claimed that won’t be the case.
However, there is widespread anger towards the proposals and nothing can be ruled out in regards to sanctions for the club’s involved.
