Champions League and Europa League to be moved to July and August

This season's Champions League and Europa League are to be moved to July and August, it is being reported.

All international matches scheduled for June are likely to be postponed until Autumn to make way for the completion of the 2019-20 season.

The move comes, according to ZDF, ahead of the latest UEFA video conference set to take place on Wednesday.

All football across Europe has been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, and uncertainty surrounds when it will be safe again to continue.

Detailed discussions are already believed to have taken place, with all parties in agreement with the view from England that the season must be completed.
