FIFA, according to a report from the Athletic, will also alter the dates of the summer transfer window and allow contract extensions for players whose deals are set to run out on June 30.

The report claims the plans are likely to be revealed in full in the next 48 hours and will afford maximum flexibility to leagues across the globe, as the spread of Covid-19 is different in each country.
