Everton and Liverpool “may resume training next month” as Premier League talks advance


Everton and Liverpool could resume training next month after a report suggested that the Premier League could return in June.

Talks are said to be at an advanced stage between senior management and government officials over a possible return to action.

The Mirror reported that there was an “agreement in principle” for the 2019/20 campaign to end behind closed doors, with clubs urged to begin preparations for a return in June.

At the Premier League meeting on Friday, this particular solution would have been discussed by the 20 clubs present during the video call.

And it is suggested that health officials be able to give the green light for the meetings to take place in two months, although under strict guidelines.

Other talks with broadcasters are also said to have taken place regarding this particular plan – television companies seeking to increase the number of game shows in June.

Some clubs also hope that the matches can be viewed on terrestrial channels.

These steps are believed to help ensure that fans are not trying to attend matches that would go against current coronavirus locking regulations.

If the crisis worsens rather than improves over the next few months, any plans for a possible return should be put on hold.

But starting next month, clubs may now consider quarantine training camps to prepare for any potential returns in June.
