The idea of the European Super League, which first saw the light of day more than two years ago, aimed to change football. Some of the biggest clubs across the continent had come together in an attempt to create a new breakaway league. This included Real Madrid as well. And for all intents and purposes, this proposed competition appeared to be a replacement for the Champions League.
Most Real Madrid fans seemed to be happy with the proposition. It fell flat on its face straight out of the gate though. Days after the idea was introduced to the public, the English clubs pulled out of the European Super League, as their fans were clearly not happy. Soon, a few other remaining teams would leave as well.
Ultimately, the three teams who remained on board were Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus. And even that might not be for long.
The relationship between Real Madrid and Barcelona appeared to suffer a blow during the 2022/23 campaign. And now, the European Super League has suffered another blow as it looks like Juventus might be eyeing an exit as well.

Not too long ago, a revised format of the European Super League was introduced, which appeared to be much more inclusive than the previous iteration of the competition. Yet, since then, there has not been a lot of movement around the idea.
If Juventus do end up pulling out of the Super League, then the two teams remaining will be Real Madrid and Barcelona. And at this point of time, it looks like it is an idea that has no immediate future.
