Despite the UK is currently in ‘lockdown’ as a means to combat the worldwide pandemic, with the public urged to remain in their homes unless entirely necessary, the Premier League could return behind closed doors at the start of May.
Voiding the campaign is seemingly off the table, and all 20 clubs are due to discuss their next steps in a video conference call on Friday, with the prospect of completing the season behind closed doors almost guaranteed.
It has been suggested that the players fulfill their remaining fixtures while quarantined in hotels, with games held at neutral venues over a short period of time, to avoid individuals contracting the virus.
The initial dates reported were across June and July, but now the Mail claim the Premier League are weighing up whether it is possible to resume action in May.
This would see fixtures begin again on the weekend of May 2/3 and played over an 10-week period that would see its culmination on July 12.
