Six years ago, chief executive Richard Scudamore proposed to play a ‘39th game’ internationally, however the idea was heavily protested and was trashed.

The plan was to have 10 games between the 20 Premier League clubs in five different cities around the world, before continuing with the 38 games in the season.

But sources have confirmed it is not impossible to see a new revised edition of the previous concept due to the global demand for Premier League football outside of the United Kingdom.

The top clubs have already asked the Football Association chiefs if there are any opportunities to increase potential revenue ahead of the new broadcasting deal next year, with many noticing the massive 109,000 spectators filling the Michigan Stadium in a game between Real Madrid and Manchester United during the summer.

A big issue is, however, compensating for one club’s loss of hosting a home fixture, which could instead lead to a cup final played outside instead.

The Italian Serie A already play their Super Cup game abroad, with Serie A champions Juventus facing Coppa Italia winners Napoli in Qatar this coming December.
