Players looking to move when their contracts expire on 30 June will be made to stay at their current clubs until the season is completed, in proposals outlined in a new FIFA document.

The measures are part of the governing bodies plans to deal with the effects of the coronavirus on the football season.



However, a new document  The Ti?mes crisis constitutes a "force majeure" - an unforeseen situation that can allow contracts to not be fulfilled.



Player contracts usually run from 1 July until 30 June, but FIFA argue that these dates are only chosen because they coincide with the football season.

Thus, FIFA's decision seems likely to face a legal challenge.

This also permits FIFA to introduce emergency powers such as restrictions on transfers until the season is complete.
