Back in the summer of 2020 the pandemic had already arrived but the true financial impact of what was to come had not yet been realised.

The Premier League pressed pause on their season in March and resumed in June, with broadcast companies seeking rebates the matches that had been pushed back.

But given the huge sums that broadcasters pay for Premier League content and the money that flows into the biggest league in the world, the League has been able to ride out the storm better than most, even if it is set for combined losses across clubs of around £1.5bn as a result of the pandemic.

Ligue 1, France's top tier, has for some time wanted to bridge the gap between themselves and the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and Bundesliga, having fallen away when it comes to competing at the top level of European competition, the Champions League.

But there are few leagues who have been hit quite as hard as French football.

That is enough to prompt the club to move on their higher earners such as Aouar and Maxwell Cornet, but they know that in a flat transfer market they will have to lower their expectations from 12 months ago significantly.

A year ago a deal at £54m would have seemed unlikely for Liverpool to engage in, especially after spending big to land Diogo Jota and Thiago Alcantara.
