The 2019/2020 English Premier season is likely set to resume as Manchester United has asked its players who traveled beyond the shores of England to return to camp.

According to reports, the Premier League is targeting a return to training in small groups from May 18, however, some doctors are uncomfortable about a restart.

It is likely United might commence training before May 18 if government sanctions the proposed June resumption date.

Bruno Fernandes, Fred, Victor Lindelof and Sergio Romero makeup a list of United players who had traveled in the wake of the corona virus pandemic.

Fifth-placed United have nine games left and will have to contend against Chelsea, Wolves, Sheffield United, Tottenham Hotspurs and Arsenal for a Champions League spot in the event that the League resumes.

Chelsea, Wolves, Sheffield United, Spurs and Arsenal are fourth, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth respectively on the EPL table.
