According to Spanish publication Voz Populi, La Liga president Javier Tebas has decided to exclude Real Madrid and Barcelona from any future meetings about the league’s TV broadcast rights and also stripped their right to vote.

The reason for this drastic action from the La Liga supremo is because of the two clubs’ continued role in the European Super League project.

Tebas has taken the decision with the backing of other clubs and La Liga’s compliance department as well as the consultancy firm KPMG and a Spanish Law Firm, Uria Menendez.

According to KPMG’s studies, Real Madrid and Barcelona’s involvement in the Super League would seriously harm the TV rights value of La Liga clubs that are not participating in the breakaway competition.

The report states that the broadcast rights would be devalued by 10% domestically and 25% internationally, which would be a major blow to La Liga’s operating finances.

Despite this development, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus are pressing ahead with their plans for the European Super League project.

In fact, earlier today, the ESL announced the new framework for the competition, revealing that the tournament is being planned as a multi-division competition with 60-80 teams involved and each club playing 14 games per season at least.

The three clubs are understood to have reached out to over 50 other teams regarding participation in the rogue tournament.

Meanwhile, with regard to their ban on voting on La Liga’s television rights, Real Madrid and Barcelona have already filed a lawsuit against Tebas and La Liga for violating their fundamental right of association.

Before he was hired by Bayern Munich as the direct replacement for Julian Nagelsmann, Thomas Tuchel was closely linked with a move to Real Madrid at the end of the season.

The German tactician had kept a close eye on the development at Santiago Bernabeu, especially with coach Carlo Ancelotti facing immense pressure following the club’s poor performances in domestic competitions.

A recent report from Jorge Picon has offered more details on the Tuchel saga, suggesting that the coach was even learning Spanish during his time at Ibiza, anticipating a potential move to Real Madrid at the end of the season.

There were even contacts made between Tuchel’s entourage and Real Madrid. Although the talks were positive, the two sides were not able to reach an agreement.

Real Madrid did not guarantee him the job. They had informed Tuchel that Ancelotti may continue at the Bernabeu in the event the club win the UEFA Champions League this season.

This bit of uncertainty played a critical role in convincing Tuchel to join Bayern Munich instead. The former Chelsea boss was hired as a direct replacement for Nagelsmann, who was sacked after a poor season in the Bundesliga by the club’s high standards.

However, Tuchel’s move to Bayern appears to be a missed opportunity on the German’s part, as Real Madrid have recently intensified their search for a new manager.

It is clear that the club’s hierarchy is yet to reach a consensus over the future of Ancelotti, with some believing that a change is necessary come the end of the season. In fact, the club’s president Florentino Perez has been an admirer of Tuchel’s compatriot Nagelsmann.

The coaching prodigy is one of the candidates to replace Ancelotti in the summer, though it is Mauricio Pochettion who is reportedly leading the race so far.
