Man United, Liverpool, and Chelsea team up with a private plane ahead of their comeback to the Premier League.
Against all chances, the Premier League’s Brazilian and Uruguayan contingents could play for their clubs this weekend.
According to rumors, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, Leeds, and Aston Villa have banded together to arrange for a private plane to transport their Brazilian and Uruguayan international talents back to the Premier League for this weekend’s fixtures. Due to the rapid turnaround, the nine players impacted were not scheduled to play this weekend, but there is now hope for all six clubs as they await the return of their South American continent.
Brazil will play Uruguay in a World Cup qualifier in the early hours of Friday morning UK time, and the match’s timing has already sparked consternation on English shores.
Nonetheless, knowing that some of their Premier League rivals would be affected made Premier League clubs more understanding.
Edinson Cavani and Fred had previously been ruled out of United’s trip to Leicester on Saturday.
When the pair return to England, the Red Devils will reassess the situation.
According to the Daily Mail, the Premier League teams have banded together to book a private chartered jet to fly the players back to England immediately following their matches.
On board, social separation will be practiced, and masks will be required at all times.
It’s not the first time in recent months that rival Premier League players have traveled together.
Emiliano Buendia and Emiliano Martinez of Aston Villa joined Tottenham’s Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero in flying to Brazil to represent Argentina last month before being evicted from the nation and traveling directly to Croatia for quarantine.
Fabinho and Alisson, both Brazilians, are racing against the clock to reach Liverpool’s 12:30pm kick-off at Watford on Saturday.
Jurgen Klopp is unlikely to select either player, as both are set to return to Merseyside ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League match against Atletico Madrid in midweek.
Manchester City, Manchester United, Leeds United, and Aston Villa all play at 3 p.m. on Saturday, which means Ederson, Gabriel Jesus, Raphinha, and Douglas Luiz will have a short turnaround.
Chelsea’s Thiago Silva might make an appearance against Brentford at 5:30 p.m.
