Premier League games could be staged over June and July, it has been claimed. The Times says most clubs have nine games of the domestic season remaining and with the season indefinitely suspended, clubs are desperate to finish the season with revenue from broadcasting deals at stake.

"By June or July they will be playing games solely as TV events," the source said "If they have to play four games a day at Wembley to get it done, they will do that." As of yet, no return date has been set in stone by the Premier League, as the UK remains in a state of lockdown
