UEFA won't pursue legal action against Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus for the European Super League proposal, it has been announced.

The plans for the controversial closed shop 'elite' division were announced in April. However, the proposal swiftly collapsed when fans across England expressed their anger through protests, with rival supporters rallying around one cause in unprecedented scenes.

Manchester United and Manchester City were 'founding members' of the proposal, but both sides duly pulled out amid the backlash along with the remaining Premier Leaguer representatives.

After the proposal fell through, though, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus made it clear they were still committed to the plan.

UEFA then proceeded to take legal action against those three rebel clubs, but it was announced on late Monday night that the case had been dropped and "declared null and void, without any prejudice, as if the proceedings had never been opened".

In May, the nine clubs who withdrew from the proposal all agreed to pay a combined fine of €15m and to have five per cent of their UEFA competitions revenues withheld for one season, however, following this decision, they will no longer have to pay that fine.

That means United and City won't face any further consequences in the future for their decision to sign up to the Super League.
