Ligue 1 bosses are planning for the restart of the French league with things getting back on track by June 17 and coming to a close a few weeks later on July 25.

According to French media outlet L’Equipe, clubs may have to resort to playing fixtures every three days in order to squeeze in the amount of games need for the season to finish.

UEFA have also proposed playing both Europa League and Champions leagues games in August, meaning the speedy remaining of the French season would allow for those to be wrapped up.
