Serie A is set to be given the option to stick with the rule permitting clubs to make five substitutions for another season.
The measure was introduced to help protect players after the coronavirus lockdown, given the inevitable onslaught of fixtures, but it was only expected to be temporary.
Now, The Athletic reports the International Football Association Board (IFAB) is set to grant an extension later this week, covering the entirety of the 2020-21 campaign.
