PSV Eindhoven director Toon Gerbrands has stated the club may have to sell a player due to the corona virus effecting their finances.

Gerbrands is worried that any football played before the end of the year will be without an audience and that will have a big effect.

Speaking to the De Telegraaf podcast, Gerbrands said, “You have to calculate things. If we have to play the first half of the competition without an audience, the impact is 15 million euros.”

To claw that money back, PSV may have to sell some players, “Then you will not get there with just handing in your salary. Then you can turn a few buttons. You may have to sell a player, to close a financial gap.

“It is still uncertain how the transfer market will develop. We also do not know when it will open, how long it will be open and what its effects will be. We work with scenarios. Will people leave or not? We take into account a transfer market, but we don’t know what the effects are.”

Denzel Dumfries has been heavily linked with a move away this summer, along with Jorrit Hendrix. Donyell Malen and Mohammed Ihattaren are interesting a lot of clubs and would pull in the highest fees.
