The Blancos are among the founding members of the new breakaway league.

Twelve of Europe’s elite football clubs, including three La Liga sides, have agreed in principle to hold a new breakaway competition called the European Super League. The competition is set to be held with 20 clubs, including 15 founding clubs and an additional five clubs that qualify annually based on their previous season’s performance.

Real Madrid

,

Barcelona

, and

Atletico Madrid

are among the founding members of the competition, with

Florentino Perez

serving as its first President. The announcement caused huge backlash from football officials as they have threatened to ban the Super League players from participating in their domestic leagues in addition to international competitions. Ahead of his side's La Liga clash against

Cadiz

on Wednesday,

Zinedine Zidane

was asked about the prospect of playing in the new competition.

"That's a question for the president, I'm just here to talk about tomorrow's game, and the rest of the season in La Liga and Champions. The rest is not my job."

He added:

"I'm not going to give you my opinion about the Super League. In the dressing room, we did not discuss the idea of the Super League, and no one spoke about any punishment."

After their match against Cadiz, Real Madrid will face

Real Betis

in their next La Liga match on April 24.
