Real Madrid are reportedly attempting to leave La Liga for a new league away from Spain, and a move to the Premier League is their preferred choice.
Real are by far Spain’s most successful club, having won the league 34 times, compared to rivals Barcelona’s 26 wins and Atletico Madrid’s 11 titles.
However the club aren’t happy at all with the league, and La Liga president Javier Tebas, due to the agreement with investment fund CVC, who are trying to buy a chunk of the Spanish top tier.
Tebas’ staunch opposition to the European Super League had already irked Los Blancos president Florentino Perez as well and so the relationship between league and club is at an all time low.
According toMundo Deportivo, that has led Real to look at alternatives to La Liga and moving abroad for their domestic league competition.
The report claims that the Premier League would be Perez’s ‘preferred choice,’ which makes sense considering the vast amounts teams in England make in tv revenue compared to those in Spain.

Real kick off their La Liga campaign against Alaves on Saturday night, which could be their last in Spain for all we know, and fans will certainly have to get used to the weird sight of not having Sergio Ramos in the team.
The former captain moved to PSG this summer after his contract expired and fans will also have to get used to seeing the combative centre back playing alongside Lionel Messi.
The pair had plenty of run ins when they were playing on either side of El Clasico but now they’ll be teammates and Ramos has even invited Messi, and the Argenine’s family, to stay at his house.
