On Tuesday afternoon, it was reported that two of the clubs that agreed to the breakaway league were considering withdrawing their participation due to heavy criticism from fans and pundits alike.

Manchester City later issued a statement in which they revealed their plans to pull out of the 12-club Super League, saying on their official website: "Manchester City Football Club can confirm that it has formally enacted the procedures to withdraw from the group developing plans for a European Super League."

Chelsea also released a statement confirming they had "begun the formal procedures for withdrawal from the group developing plans for a European Super League".

Since then, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Arsenal have confirmed the same, with the latter being the only club to formally apologise to their fans for its intentions to form part of the ESL.  

Speculation across Europe suggest that more clubs could soon follow the Premier League sides in withdrawing from the competition, with FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid both said to be close to making announcements.
