The Premier League is optimistic that the 11 players FIFA has banned from playing this weekend, will be permitted to take to the field, according to sources.
Liverpool, Manchester City, and Chelsea are the hardest hit following a backlash from South American countries.
Brazil, specifically, has endeavored to take revenge after top-flight clubs prohibited their players from traveling to red list countries for the recent World Cup qualifying fixtures.
As a result, FIFA invoked a ‘five-day restriction on those involved.
Those affected include Liverpool trio Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino, Leeds’s Raphinha, City’s Ederson and Gabriel Jesus, Chelsea’s Thiago Silva, and Manchester United’s Fred.
However, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters, has today written to clubs and indicated a resolution is in sight.
Sources disclosed that four national associations complained to FIFA, but they are in talks with both the governing body, the government, and the Football Association.
A final decision is expected by tomorrow morning at the latest.
