Manchester United could be set for some extra time off thanks to their European run[/caption]

They could be rewarded with an extended lay-off thanks to new top-flight proposals.

Sky Sports suggest the Premier League are likely to give all clubs currently involved in European competitions a guaranteed 30 days off.

This would come into force from the day after their last European fixture and is designed to give players a chance to recover.

League runners-up Man City and Wolves are also set to benefit from the time off.

The proposal will be discussed at the next Premier League AGM due to take place on August 6.

And should it be ratified it could see some of the league’s top sides start the new campaign up to TEN days late.

If Man City or Chelsea reach the Champions League final on Sunday August 23, then they would not be back in domestic action until Tuesday September 22.

A full ten days after the scheduled start of the 2020/21 season on September 12.

United and Wolves can both qualify for the Europa League showpiece on Friday August 21.

A place in the final would ensure they were not required to start the new Prem season until Sunday September 20.

Games would be delayed and held in midweek to account for the extra rest afforded to those still competing in Europe.
