Premier League stars have come under immense scrutiny to formally agree to a wage cut for the next year during the COVID-19 crisis, despite that fact, the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) has not agreed to a 30 per cent wage cut proposed by the Premier League.


However, West Ham United and Southampton players have agreed to defer a certain percentage of their earnings, while the Guardian reports that Arsenal players are expected to agree a 12.5% wage cut for the next year.


Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has made an effort in trying to combat the deadly virus by making the Millennium Hotel at Stamford Bridge available for the NHS staff.


As things stand, June 8 at the least is when the 2019-20 campaign would resume after Premier League club officials had a meeting on Friday.


The top-flight clubs are eager to finish the season, but a proposal for ending the campaign by June 30 was not raised in their meeting on Friday, according to Sky Sports.


According to the Mirror, the Blues have come to a speedy agreement following a WhatsApp chat, but we'll have to wait for an update from the west London side on how they are looking to go about the issue.
