The agreement to join the proposed European league would need to ratified by the club’s members

Barcelona have accepted a proposal to join a new European Super League, a move that would secure the club’s financial future, Josep Maria Bartomeu said after resigning as president Tuesday.

Bartomeu and the rest of the board of directors resigned ahead of a vote of no confidence due next month.

The agreement to join the proposed European league would need to ratified by the club’s members.

Last week, Sky News reported that a $6bn (4.6bn pounds) funding package had been put in place for a breakaway league, that would feature up to 18 clubs from Europe’s top five leagues, and is supported by Liverpool and Manchester United.

In response, La Liga President Javier Tebas said Bartomeu’s comments confirmed his “ignorance” about the football industry and described the Super League as “a weak and imaginary competition”.
