How Chelsea's Champions League fate and Willian contract will be affected by the Premier League plan

Premier League clubs are set to discuss the future of the league on Friday. Several clubs want the season end by June 30, as it currently suspended due to coronavirus pandemic. According to various reports the prime reason behind the suggestion relates to the expiry of player contracts on that date. And such a move could benefit clubs, especially Chelsea, solely because the chasing pack have fewer opportunities to claw back points. Chelsea lead Manchester United by three points in the current standings. It is unclear what order fixtures would be played in but if it continued in order Chelsea would also likely avoid a trip to Anfield. The player contract situation would also ease a considerable headache. If the season was to extend into July, four senior players would need to negotiate new deals. Fifa have released guidance for such a scenario but employment law would complicate matters. Willian, Pedro Rodriguez, Olivier Giroud are among those players. Source: Football.london
