Transfer revolution: Window to shut before Premier League season starts next year

Transfer revolution: Window to shut before Premier League season starts next year

Premier League clubs will discuss the proposed introduction of a new summer transfer window that closes before the opening game of next season.

The current transfer window closes on August 31, more than two weeks after the start of the domestic league season.

Barcelona would not be bound by a Premier League deadline, nor would the likes of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain or Bayern Munich, so England's most powerful clubs would find themselves vulnerable to late raids for key players in the final days of the window.

The majority of Premier League clubs are reported to be in favour of the change, with Watford among the handful of clubs to oppose it.

It is understood talks will take place between every club next month about whether to change the deadline of the current window, which closes almost three weeks after the first game of the season.

Senior South Korean diplomat says Trump threats sowing confusion
North Korea's state-run media today condemned the planned military drills and said the U.S. is "letting out unsafe war rhetoric". They may continue launching missile tests but they don't want a war, and the U.S. doesn't want military action either".

Congress holds protests across nation against attack on Rahul Gandhi's convoy
Rahul was travelling with SPG commandos some of whom were reportedly injured in the attack as they were sitting in the back. Modi is originating, and the party of the Prime minister hoped to keep the power.

Swansea boss Paul Clement and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp are among those who have been vocal for such a change. "If Liverpool were faced with a similar situation to the one they now have with Philippe Coutinho after the domestic window had closed, they would not be able to reinvest the transfer funds and bring in reinforcements", it says. The majority of clubs are in favour but maybe all of us have to be for it to go through.

It seems unlikely, but the question will be raised at some point during the final hours of the window because it is impossible to believe that all clubs will agree to suspend transfer business in order to avoid distracting global teams. But I also understand that some things take a bit more time.

"That's why I think if the window is shut before the season starts everything is sorted out and we can get on with the football".

The change will not apply to Football League clubs and other European leagues, while the January transfer window would remain unaffected.

If it comes into effect, the new transfer window would surely be interesting for the fans, with business getting done quicker and earlier.
