AC Milan was one of three Serie A clubs to be involved in the breakaway Super League project, along with Inter Milan and Juventus, which fell apart within days of its announcement last month.

A group of 11 Serie A clubs subsequently called for those three teams to face consequences in a joint letter to Dal Pino. However, the 20 clubs that make up Serie A met on Wednesday and unanimously agreed to postpone any discussion about the ESL until their next meeting. They also agreed to delay a vote on bids for the second TV rights package for the period 2021-2024.
