Football tried everything to escape the reality that has been plaguing the whole world since the beginning of the new decade.
The fixtures were even scheduled to resume recently in LaLiga, the Premier League and the Bundesliga, on the other hand Turkey only suspended their domestic action on Thursday.
But in the last couple of days football has came out from its imagined state of immunity and finally face the reality and the panic of the situation in the world and how a lot of recessions could hit the sport.
It was reported that FIFA want to offer remedies for the clubs who might face a lot of difficulty in the next months and will have troubling times.
It was reported that teams like Werder Bremen, Borussia Monchengladbach, Lyon and Hearts have all announced layoffs or cut offs in the wages of the players.
All football fixtures were halted and that obviously affects the clubs.
A lot of things depend on how the fight against the coronavirus develops, but it is not a secret that the clubs are already planning a change in the environment of the transfer market.
The times are very difficult for everyone and nobody can guarantee contracts during the pandemic, and for sure the incomes and the expenses will have to be reduced.
"The figures were inflated and lots of million euros were being spent on any player," said a sporting director.
"Those times will change though and there won't be any more signings for 100 million euros.''
So far, only nine football players have cost over 100 million: Neymar Jr., Kylian Mbappe, Philippe Coutinho, Joao Felix, Ousmane Dembele, Antoine Griezmann, Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba and Eden Hazard.
Both FIFA and UEFA are trying to avoid the collapse that might happen if the competitions are restarted and the clubs are being warned about what is yet to come.
The transfer fees most certainly are going to drop and the salaries are most likely going to be cut off.
For now only Real Madrid who are not so worried about the situation and they claim that they are prepared to overcome the situation which is facing them.
