  • England v Cameroon 1990 FIFA World Cup

Manchester United, Liverpool, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Inter, Juventus, Ajax and Paris Saint-Germain are the 10 European nations said to be confirmed for the first tournament with an extra two to be picked from Manchester City, Chelsea, Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Porto and Benfica.

The two super clubs of Spain favor the respective FIFA-initiated changes, reported MARCA newspaper of Spain.

According to a report in The Times, FIFA are planning the creation of a 24-team club World Cup.

But Madrid, victor of the last two editions of the Club World Cup, is endorsing Infantino's vision of the tournament being played every four years in June or July with 12 representatives from Europe.

Lee Swettenham of the Manchester Evening News relayed more details from the initial report, noting nine teams meet that criteria, meaning three places would be up for grabs. Some domestic competitions, including the English Premier League, are also said to be firmly opposed to the idea.

Clubs could earn up to £100 million from participating in the tournament which is backed by a consortium led by Japanese company SoftBank.

Infantino is pushing to revamp the Club World Cup, boosting it from seven clubs to 24 in a four-year format. Sponsors from the United Arab Emirates, Japan and Saudi Arabia would reportedly bankroll the winnings. He adds that the Swiss is expected to call an emergency Fifa Council meeting in early June in a bid to get the green light.
