THE eagerly anticipated return date of the Premier League could be decided this week.
Players are back at club HQs ahead of the return of close-contact training – with coaches reportedly being brought in to monitor contact levels.
Stars and managers can discuss any remaining concerns over phase two of Project Restart when they hold separate video calls with the Premier League on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, clubs will then vote on whether to move to the next stage of training, which could be brought in before the end of this week.
Most clubs are expected to back the proposals put forward in phase two.
Friday June 12 was originally earmarked as the ideal return date, however it is now expected to be a week later on June 19.
Whatever date is decided, it looks like a blockbuster clash between Manchester United and Spurs is set to be the first game back after the coronavirus pandemic.
That clash was originally scheduled for March 15.
