Juventus confirm being part of Super League breakaway: But we don't know if it'll happen

Juventus have announced they're part of the 12-club European Super League breakaway group - though insist it may never happen.

The clubs all released versions of the same press release more or less simultaneously this evening.

They are AC Milan, Arsenal FC, Atlético de Madrid, Chelsea FC, FC Barcelona, FC Internazionale Milano, Juventus FC, Liverpool FC, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid CF and Tottenham Hotspur.

However, Juve have included a qualifier in their statement:

"While the founding clubs will use their best efforts to implement the project within the shortest possible timeframe, at the moment the Company cannot assure that the project will be eventually successfully launched or predict the exact timing of the project. Accordingly, the Company does not have all the necessary elements to assess in detail the impact of the Super League on its financial and economic conditions and performance."
