Chelsea completed the signing of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax in February, and the Moroccan signed a five year deal with the Blues.
Ziyech is to return to Chelsea in June at the end of the season, but a lot has happened since the 26-year-old signed up for Chelsea.
The coronavirus pandemic has since shattered the football world, as football has been on suspension since early March across Europe.
This means that football could be suspended for even longer than anticipated, with many believing that the season could be concluded in July – by that time, Ziyech should already be a Chelsea player.
However, local lawyer Gerrit Pieter Poiesz says a loan arrangement could be the answer to the situation as many clubs and players will have to adjust to make things work.
He told De Telegraaf: “FIFA is not a party to the contract, they do not pay the salary and they are not liable if anything happens. It is an employer-employee relationship.
“Ziyech could be loaned for a few months with permission from Chelsea, Ajax and Ziyech. That way, clubs and players can cooperate to finish the postponed season, but with so many parties that is a hell of a job.”
