On The Continent: The Ligue 1 season ends but transfer rumours roll on
Is football coming back anytime soon? It’s proving impossible to say definitively. As the Premier League’s ‘Project Restart’ gathers momentum, Ligue 1 has announced that they will not attempt to finish this season, after the French government banned gatherings of large people until at least August. We break down that news on today’s episode of On The Continent!
This decision has brought on yet more worries for French clubs and the precarious financial states some of them are in, with €600m owed in outstanding transfer funds to those clubs. We discuss their situation as well as developments from Spain, where Julen Lopetegui voiced concerns about the mental and physical demands on players in lockdown, and Germany who are cautiously planning to restart the Bundesliga. Don’t worry, there’s also a portion of meaty football chat; we work out where the likes of Edinson Cavani, Dries Martens and Gonzalo Higuaín may end up plying their trade when football eventually returns!
