The ideas were discussed at yesterday’s club video conference.

Club chiefs want players to spend as little time as possible at training complexes.

It means five separate sessions for squads of 25.

But in England, this will be ramped up each day.

SunSport also reported that Premier League clubs are in talks to play as late as AUGUST as they look to finish the 2019-20 season and avoid missing out on £1billion.
