The Premier League could return to action as soon as the 8th June and finish on the 27th July. This is after the league met with the government to organise when sporting events would be able to take place again.

In a report by 'The TImes', the Premier League "is close to reaching an agreement with the government" to restart the competition at the beginning of June and finish before the month of August. If this were to happen, it would also include extending player's contracts by a further 30 days.

English football stopped on the 13th March with 10 game weeks left to play. Liverpool were on the brink of winning the league title but European and relegation places were still very much undecided. A return on June 8th until the 27th July would see the remaining 92 matches take place over a two-month period.

All members of the coaching staff, players and referees would need to be tested before any football could return. All matches would take place behind closed doors.

It's also suggested in the report that every side will pocket £10m compensation for money lost due to playing in empty stadiums.
