Juventus have been told they face expulsion from Serie A if they remain part of the European Super League.


The Turin club, along with Barcelona and Real Madrid, are yet to withdraw from the proposed breakaway league.


Italian federation president Gabriele Gravina said: “If Juventus does not respect the rules they will be out.


“At the time of registration for the next Serie A championship the club will be excluded if they decide not to withdraw from the Super League.”


Juve, Barca and Real continue to be committed to the project, and last week defended their involvement in the breakaway league in the face of what they call “threats” from Uefa.


But pressure is mounting on Serie A club Juve to withdraw.


“We are all a bit tired of this tug-of-war between Uefa and these three clubs,” said Gravina. “I hope this dispute can be resolved as soon as possible. I hope to be able to mediate between Juventus and Uefa.


The rules foresee the non-participation in our championship if the principles established by the federation and Uefa are not accepted.


“It’s not good for international football, Italian football, Juventus. We have already said that the football association respects the rules.”


The ESL was announced on 18 April but within 48 hours the plans had fallen apart with the English clubs withdrawing after fan protests and UK government pressure.


The nine clubs who withdrew from the competition have been given a financial punishment by Uefa.


Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal, along with AC Milan, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid, also committed to the European governing body and its competitions.


They have agreed to make a combined 15m euro (£13.4m) goodwill contribution to benefit children’s and grassroots football across Europe.


Edinson Cavani: Man Utd agree contract extension with striker.


Edinson Cavani has signed a contract extension at Manchester United that keeps the Uruguay striker at the club until June 2022.


The 34-year-old has had an outstanding finish to the season, scoring eight goals in seven games.


Cavani said: “I have developed a great affection for the club and everything that it represents.


“I feel a deep bond with my team-mates and the staff who work behind the scenes.”


Cavani, who was undecided over whether to stay for a second year, added: “They give me extra motivation every day and I know that together we can achieve special things.”


Since joining on a free transfer in October 2020, Cavani has scored 15 goals in all competitions – his latest coming in Sunday’s 3-1 Premier League win at Aston Villa.


He has been one of the leading strikers in European football for the past decade, scoring a record 200 goals in 301 appearances for Paris St-Germain after joining from Napoli, where he made his name.


Cavani left the French club in June 2020 following a disagreement with Brazil forward Neymar.


Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he always wanted Cavani to stay for a second season.


“I said when Edinson signed that he would bring energy, power and leadership to this group and I haven’t been proved wrong, he has been everything I thought he would be and more,” said the Norwegian.


As coaches we knew about his goalscoring record, however it is his personality that has brought so much to this squad, he has a winning mentality and has an unequivocal attitude to everything he does.


Edinson is one of the last to leave the training ground and sets the tone for the upcoming youngsters with his approach to his profession every single day.


“I have always wanted him to stay and experience the way our fans will respond to him as a player, and this means he will hopefully get that opportunity.”
