It has been almost three weeks since Tottenham last took to the field after the coronavirus pandemic led to football across the world grinding to a halt.

Recent reports indicate that plans are being discussed to resume the Premier League in June and which would see all of the teams play their remaining fixtures behind closed doors (Independent).

Tottenham striker Harry Kane suggested in an interview with Jamie Redknapp that he believes the end of June should be a cut off point for the current campaign to be concluded.

However, according to a study by Centre for Sports Studies Football Observatory (as relayed by Football.London), the value of Tottenham’s squad could drop from £699 million to £497.4 million if the season is called off.

That is a projected drop of £201.6 million, which makes the Lilywhites the tenth biggest losers in the whole of Europe.

It is revealed that the projections are made based on multiple metrics including expiring contracts, players’ age, career path and recent performances.

Manchester City will reportedly see the highest fall in the value of their squad if the season is not played out (£366.2m).

These figures prove that the economic consequences of the coronavirus shutdown will likely have a major impact on the transfer market for several years to come. This along with substantial TV revenue that clubs could miss out on makes it imperative for the season to be completed.
