The outlet further confirmed that United follow in the footsteps of Italian giants AC Milan and Inter Milan.
“Manchester United have stood down from the European Club Association (ECA) and club executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has stepped down from his UEFA roles,” Sky reported.
“Sky in Italy have confirmed Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan have also left the ECA.

“Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli has also resigned as ECA chairman, a position he held since 2012, and left his post as a member of the UEFA Executive Committee to take up the Super League vice-president role.
“The ECA is a body representing the interests of over 200 professional football clubs in UEFA. It is the sole such body recognised by UEFA, and has member clubs in each UEFA member association,” the report concluded.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils next travel to Eland Road to take on Leeds United on Sunday for a League game.
