Serie A resume training on May 4?

Serie A could resume training sessions on May 4, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, with three hypotheses to help conclude the campaign in July.

The newspaper claims Serie A are planning to follow the German Bundesliga and resume training, initially with social distancing and gradually return to normal.

The three hypothetic dates mentioned for the possible resumption are May 24, May 31 or June 7, with six and a half weeks outlined to finish the remaining 13 fixtures of the campaign.

It would mean that Serie A would be concluded by the beginning or in the middle of July.

FIFA has opened for the possibility to extend the contracts beyond June 30 and indicated they are doing all they can to conclude the season, but the biggest problem remains the players.

Many of them travelled home during the quarantine and will have to return to Italy and will therefore be in quarantine for 14 days.

La Gazzetta dello Sport also reveals that Juventus trio Paulo Dybala, Blaise Matuidi and Daniele Rugani are still in quarantine after testing positive for coronavirus.

Fiorentina, Sampdoria and Hellas Verona have also reported cases of coronavirus in their squads.
