In a statement, the clubs say they want to meet with CONMEBOL in order to protest their financial interests.

Rodolfo D'Onofrio, the president of Argentine club River Plate, says "we have to know about the contracts that are signed. It can't be that the clubs don't know what contracts CONMEBOL is signing."

The clubs represent Chile, Paraguay, Argentina, Ecuador, Uruguay and Peru and include famous names like River Plate and Boca Juniors.

The move comes as world soccer is in turmoil with several top officials of CONMEBOL indicted on corruption charges linked to the FIFA scandal.
