FIFA Set to Extend Coronavirus-Disrupted 2019/20 Football Season Indefinitely - Reports

According to the portal, FIFA will reveal their plans before the end of Tuesday. FIFA intends to alter the summer transfer window, which traditionally ends on August 31, and clubs will also be allowed to extend the contracts of players whose deals expire at the end of June, the portal reported.

Football leagues across the world have been forced to shut down amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic after governments banned sporting events and mass public gatherings.

Players from a number of Europe’s biggest clubs, including Spain’s Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, have offered to take extensive pay cuts to protect the incomes of non-playing staff.

Three players from the Italian club Juventus — Paulo Dybala, Blaise Matuidi and Daniele Rugani — tested positive for the disease in March.
