Individual clubs, including Real Madrid and Barcelona, as well as those from the Premier League, emerged from Federation Internationale de Football Association presentations supporting the idea of a new Club World Cup every four years, which promised an average of more than £100 million to each participating club.

It is understood that the proposal will be discussed at Fifa's council meeting in Kigali, Rwanda, later this week.

Earlier in the year, Infantino said he had investors, who were never identified, willing to pay $12 billion for four tournaments every four years from 2021.

Uefa is expected to vote against the plans.

The picture for the Club World Cup, now an annual tournament with seven teams, is less clear.

The annual Club World Cup, which now features seven teams, would be expanded to 24 teams and moved to once every four years, according to the proposals.

In each case, the competition format, number of teams and division of places between each confederation are yet to be determined, but it will last a maximum of 18 days.

The tournament, known as the "Final 8", will be the climax of a proposed global Nations League competition.

The Fifa Council will vote this week on whether to introduce a Nations League including countries from across the world from 2022.

The new competitions and related commercial strategy feature on the agenda for the meeting and the Federation Internationale de Football Association spokesman told Reuters that there will be votes held on the proposals.

It added that world players' union FIFPro was positive about a new Club World Cup, provided player health was considered.

However, the plans were strongly opposed by clubs and leagues in Europe, with UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin saying they were "highly cynical and ruthless mercantilism" and accused Federation Internationale de Football Association of selling the soul of the game.

The World Leagues Forum (WLF) letter, signed by Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore, Bundesliga CEO Christian Seifert and Mexican Liga MX executive president Enrique Bonilla and confirmed to Reuters, said the leagues are "firmly opposed to any decision at this stage".
