UEFA could complete this season’s Champions League and Europa League competitions during the three-week section in August.
This will allow Manchester City and Manchester United to continue their European performances this season.
According to the Mirror, that idea has been discussed at UEFA, as they look to come up with a resolution to conclude this season’s European club competitions, which are currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The latest solution involves several theories. First, the hope is that the domestic leagues will be back up and running by mid-June, leaving six weeks for those remaining match-days to be completed.
Should that happen, the clubs still involved in European club competitions will then battle it out during three weeks in August.
This plan could run the risk of cutting into the following season’s fixtures. Moreover, the Premier League clubs still participating in the tournament would potentially miss only three games before September’s international break.
