In my opinion, a "European Super League" - ESL - (with a different name) could be a good option as a new "domestic league".
Bundesliga, Premier League, La Liga, League 1 and Serie A have to many good clubs compared to other national leagues.

So they could create a transnational "domestic" league to accomodate this demand.

Not replacing "Champions League" or "killing" domestic leagues. In the last case this clubs will play in their national leagues at least each 2 years. And also this prevents all top level clubs from same city leaves the domestic league.

Also this gives more chances to qualification for CL and EL, ending top level clubs dispute.

The ESL should have new berths for qualification to CL and EL, maybe 8 (5 CL, 3 EL).
Also, the clubs playing in this league will be elegible to domestic cups and league cup in their home countries. So, clubs in this ESL could qualify through national cups or this transnational league, prevaling ESL qualification.

Best candidate clubs are from cities/urban areas with 2 or more clubs well established in their domestic leagues.
No more than 16-20 clubs in this ESL.
Main candidate cities/clubs:
England - Liverpool, Manchester, Midlands Urban Area and Greater London.
Spain - Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla.
Italy - Turin, Genoa, Milan and Rome.
France - Monaco
Germany - North Rhine-Westphalia.
Other cities/Domestic Leagues could also be elegible depending on the impact caused.

The clubs in this cities should committee to the new ESL forming a steady group allowing rotation each season. One season in ESL, the next season in Domestic League, and so on.

Cannot believe you think this is a good idea. Who would get into the champions league? Top 4 of the English premier league? or top clubs in the European super league? Also with your idea, a Leicester city will never happen again.....

This is an amazing idea and I for one am shocked it hasn't been suggested before.

My only concern is whether the youngsters at these super clubs would get enough game time.

Perhaps the teams that leave could let the reserves play in the domestic league in their place? Supporters of clubs like Everton and Stoke would prefer to see someone who might be famous for Manchester City one day instead of the likes of Derby or Brighton.
