Premier League could return in weeks

The Premier League may return soon, Jadon Sancho's future is in doubt, and FIFA sends out millions of dollars in support.

The Sun believes that the Premier League could return in a matter of weeks despite the coronavirus pandemic. There is little chance of fans being allowed into grounds until next year and there are a number of tests that must be met before the government allows a restart, including a falling infection rate and that safety is ensured for staff and players.

***No measures could ever be 100% successful in stopping the spread of coronavirus, but with no vaccine on the cards it appears that keeping a slow spread of the infection is perhaps our least worst option on offer. In these circumstances, giving the country free-to-air football may go some way to relieve the boredom of the current situation. 

Coronavirus may prevent United from signing Kane and Sancho 
Coronavirus could end Manchester United’s chances of signing Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, according to the Daily Telegraph. The paper also believes that United are unsure about Borussia Dortmund’s valuation of Jadon Sancho, with the German club wanting around £115 million for the 20-year-old winger. Jack Grealish is more affordable at £47 million. 

***: It is usually fair to scoff at United’s bluster towards transfers. One moment they are briefing they are big spenders, and the next they fail to complete obvious and necessary transfers. However with Coronavirus it is no surprise that they are being more circumspect over their transfer targets, given the uncertainty hanging over the whole sport.

FIFA to give associations £121m 
World football body FIFA will give around £121 million to its national associations as they struggle with the financial impact of the coronavirus, the Daily Mail reports. Each association will be given payments of $500,000 to help them ease their financial burdens. 'The pandemic has caused unprecedented challenges for the entire football community and, as the world governing body, it is FIFA's duty to be there and support the ones that are facing acute needs,' Gianni Infantino said
