Real Madrid have rejected speculation that they are “studying” the possibility of joining the Premier League.
The Spanish club are currently at the center of an ongoing feud with La Liga bosses looking to sell a 10 percent stake in the league to public company CVC Capital Partners.
The proposed deal would give La Liga clubs a cash boost, which is more than welcome around the world of football given the coronavirus pandemic and its financial impact, but Madrid and Barcelona have firmly declined the plans.
A report from Mundo Deportivo this morning suggested Real Madrid are considering leaving Spain’s top league.
The report from Spain also claims that Madrid President Florentino Perez’s “favorite competition” is the Premier League and they are “studying” the possibility of moving to the English top division as well as Serie A and the Bundesliga.
This report, however, has been emphatically denied by Real Madrid – who released an angrily worded statement.
It said: “Given the information released today by the Mundo Deportivo newspaper that our club has examined the possibility of moving from LaLiga to the premier, Real Madrid would like to claim that this information is completely false, absurd and impossible and it just wants to disrupt the everyday life of our club again. “

In addition to the disagreement over the CVC deal, Perez is also reported to be upset after Javier Tebas recently voiced his opposition to the European Super League.
Perez was the man in charge of the controversial ‘runaway’ league, whose plans were abandoned fairly quickly before the end of last season.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur were all part of the original plans before widespread fan condemnation forced the proposal to be scrapped.
