Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was involved in the plans for the European Super League "from day one", according to a Premier League chief executive.

Woodward will leave his role with the Red Devils at the end of the year, and a recent report has claimed that the 49-year-old made the decision to stand down as he could not support the club's plans for the breakaway competition, which has now been hit by a number of withdrawals.

However, a Premier League chief executive has told Sky Sports News that the former investment banker was "involved in it from day one."

Woodward, who is said to have a close relationship with Man United co-owner Joel Glazer, will stay in his current position until the end of the year before moving on.

The 20-time English champions were confirmed as one of the 12 founding clubs of the Super League on Sunday evening, before the competition quickly fell apart due to a fierce backlash.

Woodward's exit could also allegedly see the club's recently-appointed director of football John Murtough move on in the near future. body check tags ::
