Rummenigge suggests Bayern could take legal action after 'Super League' allegation

Football Leaks: Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal And Manchester City Allegedly Involved In Plans For A European Super League Europe football 'Super League' plan leaked

FC Bayern is also unaware of recent plans for a so-called Super League, also reported by "Der Spiegel", nor has FC Bayern taken part in negotiations relating to such plans.

But now the football leaks which are run by the German outlet Der Spiegel has produced information that suggests that a new super league is seriously being discussed.

Club chairman Rummenigge added that Bayern Munich stands by their membership to the Bundesliga, as well as the various other club competitions they are now involved in.

Some Bayern supporters showed their desire to remain in Germany's top flight during Saturday's match at the Allianz Arena with one banner stating: "We stand for the Bundesliga - Super League without us".

Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal were all named in the documents which were released by Football Leaks and published by German news magazine "Der Spiegel".

It is also claimed by Der Spiegel that Rummenigge used his position as chairman of the European Club Association (ECA) to secure reform with UEFA that granted greater financial benefits to the richest clubs.

Watch Trump and Obama face off
Trump received the type of jobs report that any president would envy heading into the final days before the midterm elections. The Democratic Party candidate is hoping to become the country's first black female governor, Deutsche Welle reported .

The same documents allege that the five guest teams would be Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Marseille, Inter and Roma, and that a secondary league could also be formed, with the five guest teams potentially having to face off against the top teams from that second league yearly in order to maintain their place in the competition.

The supposed reasoning behind it was that a number of the biggest clubs felt that UEFA owed them more money and more money, and if they weren't given it, they would start their own league.

So says the document, the league would begin operating in the 2021 season. There would also be a knockout round once the league phase is complete.

Rummenigge said he was "not aware" of the new plans, after Bayern had also dismissed the report late Friday.

It is likely, though, that a Super League would replace the Champions League entirely, though it is not clear how it would affect the participating clubs' domestic and national leagues.
