Amid all the issues facing football amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Premier League clubs are having plenty of difficulties with player contracts set to expire in 2021, as reported by The Telegraph.
Of course, when it comes to contracts, the situation of players who counted on becoming free agents this summer but were counted upon by their respective clubs for this season needs to be sorted first. But the main problem when it comes to those whose deals run for 12 months more is that the clubs fear the players’ value will significantly decrease. It would have decreased anyway as the deals approach their end, but the current crisis is likely to add to that effect. Meanwhile, the uncertainty of when the crisis will end also raises concerns regarding the time left to negotiate new deals with those players.
Among the more notable names regarding this particular problem are Manchester City winger Leroy Sane and striker Sergio Aguero, Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, and Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
