Premier League clubs are set to lose out on a substantial amount of broadcast revenue if the Premier League season is voided (Daily Mail), which is why clubs and the Premier League are said to be intent on finishing the season.
The financial distress caused by the coronavirus pandemic is set to have a major impact on the transfer market this summer as well (transfermarkt).
Last week, we covered former Tottenham director of football Damien Comolli’s interview with Sky Sports in which he suggested that only three clubs will be able to spend any money in the summer.
While the Frenchman did not reveal which three clubs will be active in the market, he did admit that the majority of the teams will be on the lookout for free transfers and player swap deals.
Comolli has since spoken to the Daily Mail singled out Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United as three clubs who could have an advantage over the rest of the top flight due to their financial might.
Spurs Web Opinion
A lot will depend on whether or not the season is voided. If the Premier League finds a way to complete the season behind closed doors, then clubs will get some financial reprieve and we could see a little more money spent. Even then, if Tottenham fail to qualify for the Champions League, I do not expect us to spend in excess of £50-60 million this summer.
