European Super League announced

The headline news in the footballing world over the last 24 hours has of course come in the form of the planned European Super League.

As first revealed by The Times on Sunday morning, six English clubs are among 12 European teams who have signed up to a breakaway Super League.

The Premier League sides in question are understood to be Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea, with the remaining teams currently made up Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan.

Bruno Fernandes reacts to news

The news, unsurprisingly, has not gone down too well with the majority of the footballing world.

Pundits, including Gary Neville, have already spoken out against it.

A number of fans and players outside of the 12 participating sides have also made their feelings on the matter known:

Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes, though, has become the first player from one of the 12 clubs to actually react to the news publicly.

Wolves winger and international teammates of Fernandes Daniel Podence took to Instagram on Monday to post the following photo with the caption:

The Ball. The Song. The Dream. The Zidane’s volley… Kaka’s Solo… Liverpool In Athens… Ole in Barcelona… Cris and Seedorf … There some things we just can’t really pay for it.

Fernandes then reacted the post on his own Instagram, with three clapping hands emojis and the caption ‘dreams can’t be buy’ (presumably he meant bought):
