I think there’s a strong chance it’s a threat/negotiating ploy by these large clubs in order to get greater %’s of revenues/rules in their favor. The domestic leagues need to hold firm – no reason to give in to them or make any special allowances for these teams.
If they do pull away/start this EFL in place of the champions leagues, even if the FA’s can’t ban them from competing domestically outright, they can certainly make life extremely difficult for them via scheduling/etc. These “big” teams need their domestic leagues – without them, their fan bases will shrink as they won’t be successful consistently when up against other ‘super’ teams.
