Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira says the club plan to resume training on May 18.
Players from other Premier League clubs, including Arsenal and Tottenham, have already returned to their training facilities under strict conditions, while the majority of top-flight squads remain in self-isolation.
United players who were based abroad during the coronavirus outbreak have been told to return to the UK and Pereira has confirmed plans are in place to restart training at Carrington later this month.
“We had a meeting and were told that if everything is going well, we’ll be back in training on May 18 in groups of six,” Pereira told Globo Esporte.
“If that goes well, a week or two later, we’ll be able to train as a group.
“There will be six players training initially and there won’t be much contact between us. We’ll still be separated and training in different parts of the pitch. Those precautions have to be followed.
“I don’t know who’ll be in my group yet.”
Pereira is enjoying his most successful season at United since breaking into the first team in 2014, making 37 appearances in all competitions before the coronavirus outbreak.
