The English Premier League are working on a suitable date for the return of football after a meeting dominated by talks over when players can return to training on Friday, MySportDab reports.
All clubs were informed that the UK government will not make special plans for football during talks over when to relax social distancing.
Now, the Premier League has outlined scenario of which training would resume fully on May 18 with matches to be played three weeks later behind closed doors.
According to The Daily Mail, Various clubs have held private talks about their desire for a deadline of June 30 to complete the season due to the legal difficulties of extending player contracts, finances and others.
However, there was still commitment from all clubs to finish the season if possible with a given framework based on the fixture list.
The Big Six clubs are more keen to finish the season as they have large prize money and European Competition qualification at risk and they are ready to play until August if necessary.

‘Today’s (Friday) shareholders’ meeting provided an opportunity to talk about possible scheduling techniques.
‘Our main objective remains to complete the 2019-20 season but right now all dates are unsure while the impact of Covid-19 continues.’
