A chief executive of an unnamed club has told The Athletic that desperate measures are being considered to ensure this season is concluded.

“The country that keeps getting proposed is China,” they began.

“It just doesn’t make any sense. It is a crazy idea and I think it will get firmly rejected.

“If we were to pick up the Premier League and move it to another part of world right now we’d get absolutely slaughtered.

“Somebody accused us the other day of being in a bubble. I feel a little bit like they are right at the moment – even though I am not, I can see why people think we are.”

Another executive has also stated: “It’s just a waste of energy. Let’s just say we all want to start the league and life. Unfortunately only God and the pandemic can make this decision. And it does not look likely.”

All 20 Premier League sides are set to take part in a video conference call on Friday in an attempt to move the season forward.

A ‘festival of football‘ – fitting games into a very tight schedule – has also been suggested by Gary Neville as a possible solution, while there are fears England could follow Belgium’s steps by cancelling the end of the campaign entirely.

The Jupiler Pro League was on Thursday ended and current positions confirmed as final, meaning Club Brugge won the title as they were 15 points clear of second place Gent at the time football was suspended due to coronavirus.

UEFA have recently announced their method of giving domestic leagues enough time to finish their seasons in the summer.

International fixtures have been pushed back to September at least while the Champions and Europa League resumption dates haven’t been set.

Euro 2020 was also scheduled for the summer but that has been pushed back until 2021 due to the current pandemic.
