​Barcelona's Pique moves to introduce new elite European club competition

Barcelona star Gerard Piqué has held talks with the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) regarding the creation of a new elite European club soccer competition, according to the country's foremost radio network, Cadena SER, reports, www.sportspromedia.com/.

The 32-year-old, who has overhauled the International Tennis Federation's (ITF) Davis cup competition via his Kosmos investment vehicle, reportedly wants to create a 'European Super Cup'.

According to the Cadena SER report, the tournament would feature the champions of the European leagues and possibly a few other of the continent's top clubs, with a format somewhat similar to what has been put in place for the new Davis Cup.

It is safe to assume that Kosmos, the company founded by Piqué along with Hiroshi Miktani, president of Rakuten, would be involved in the project although that has not been reported.

Piqué has apparently been working on the concept for some time and wants to implement it sooner rather than later.
