Juventus and Milanese giants confirm intention to remain in Serie A

A major development in Italian football has been forthcoming this evening, after all of Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan made clear their desire to remain a part of Serie A.

The aforementioned trio of heavyweights have of course joined nine others from across the continent at the heart of widespread criticism over the last 24 hours.

This comes on the back of the announcement regarding plans for the introduction of a 'European Super League'.

The competition would heavily alter the very landscape of football as we know it, with a dozen of Europe's finest ready to break away, to partake in a Champions League alternative.

As things stand, the sides committed to the proposal are:

Juve, Inter, AC Milan, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham.

Serie A clubs push for stay

Swiftly following on the back of such plans being made public, however, has of course been an intense backlash on the part of fans, pundits and footballing institutions alike.

UEFA have threatened a whole host of sanctions, including the expulsion of all of Chelsea, Man City and Real Madrid from this season's Champions League, and a ban on all Super League-based players from the European Championships and World Cup.

Perhaps the most noteworthy of all, though, has been the assurance that all 12 founding members of the competition will be banned from participating in their respective domestic leagues.

Such a move would of course shatter all of the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A as we know them, opening the door for smaller sides to step up, but also ending the interest of many a 'casual fan'.

As outlined above, though, on Monday, the three leaders of the Italy-based Super League push have hit back against such a development.

As confirmed by a host of reliable sources, despite having initially been expected to sit out, Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan attended a meeting between the 20 Serie A clubs this evening.

And the key takeaway was all three making crystal clear their full intent to remain a participating member of the Italian top-flight:
