Juventus have been warned they could be kicked out of Serie A if they do not leave the European Super League.
Juventus, along with Barcelona and Real Madrid, are part of the final three clubs who have not formally left the failed tournament.
Inter and AC Milan were both part of the initial Super League announcement but have since withdrawn from the competition due to the heavy backlash from fans and the footballing world.
Speaking to Kiss Kiss, a radio station in Naples, Italian soccer federation president Gabriele Gravina confirmed the possible consequences facing the Old Lady.
“The rules are clear. If Juventus is still part of the Super League when it enters next season, it can’t participate in Serie A. I would be sorry for the fans but rules are rules and they apply to everyone.”
The Super League imploded within the space of a week as the gigantic backlash cornered clubs into having to ditch the project with UEFA threatening major sanctions on the clubs unless they formally withdraw which has been the case with all six Premier Clubs as well as the two Milan clubs and Atletico Madrid.
It now remains to be seen just how long the final three clubs will be able to hold out before they too are forced to abandon their plans.
