Premier League clubs have booked a private plane to get their South American players back in time for the weekend.
Manchester City, Liverpool, and Manchester United are thought to be working together on a six-figure plane to transport overseas players.
Nine top-flight players from Brazil and Uruguay will leave immediately after their World Cup qualifier in Manaus, which is set to begin at 1:30 a.m. UK time on Friday.
Thiago Silva of Chelsea and Douglas Luiz of Aston Villa are both returning home, and the potential of breaking the group into two flights based on where their clubs play on Saturday has been mooted.
Spurs aim to transport their entire squad – Argentina’s Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero, Colomba’s Davinson Sanchez, and Brazilian Emerson Royal – by private aircraft ahead of Sunday’s match against Newcastle United.
Passengers on any planes will be socially separated by wearing masks.
