Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, Serie A has been suspended and isn’t expected to resume until the beginning of May at earliest. However, postponing the season into the summer could create problems for the clubs.
As reported by today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews.it), if the season ends after June 30th, then the loan deals will no longer be valid. Furthermore, those sitting on an expiring contract would contractually be free to leave as well.
Milan currently have three players on loan at the club, namely Asmir Begovic, Simon Kjaer and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Furthermore, Lucas Biglia and Jack Bonaventura will both be free agents as things stand in the summer.
Of course, per the newspaper, the league would have to implement some sort of temporary dispensation that can allow the players to stay until the season’s end. However, it still remains to be seen when the games will be underway again.
