English football clubs, Chelsea and Man Utd made it to the finals of the Uefa Champions League after they defeated Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain PSG respectively in the semi-final.

Chelsea and Man City are expected to go head to head on the 29th of this month at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey.

However, there are indications that there could be a last-minute change of venue for the match owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The UK government has warned citizens from travelling to Turkey for the match as the country is on the UK COVID-19 red list for travel.

Gove told Sky News on Sunday: “My son is a Chelsea fan and he would dearly love to see the game played in the UK.”

He revealed that talks are on with UEFA to consider a change of venue and allow the match to be played in England instead since it an all English affair.

“But there are delicate negotiations that are going on at the moment,” Gove said.

He revealed that his colleague, the Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden, is talking to people about this at the moment.

Villa Park and Wembley have been selected as possible options if the game is played in England.
