Good morning legacy fans and welcome to the Wednesday edition of The Guardian’s liveblog documenting the latest developments in the European Super League.
It seems inevitable we are in for another momentous day as late last night a frenzy of activity concluded with a statement from the Super League that indicated the controversial project was now on hold. “Given the current circumstances, we shall reconsider the most appropriate steps to reshape the project,” read the announcement.
That statement arrived following the withdrawal of all six English members of the breakaway group. Those half-dozen sides drip-fed statements backing out of the scheme throughout Tuesday evening.
It has also been reported, but not yet confirmed, that Internazionale and AC Milan are both ready to remove their association with the Super League. That leaves only Juventus, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid of the core group of renegades.
Expect plenty of news from Spain and Italy as the day whirrs into life.
