UEFA has proposed that this summer’s transfer window could remain open for three months.
The Covid-19 outbreak and delays in the completion of league seasons across Europe has thrown the entire transfer market into confusion, but now UEFA has attempted to provide some clarity, although it is down to individual football federations to determine their own dates,
With a deadline for registration for European club competitions for next season now set for October 6th, UEFA are proposing that the transfer window should end at midnight on the day before i.e. October 5th.
And it has been suggested that the window could open on July 6th, although players will not be allowed to pay for new clubs until next season.
The Premier League clubs are due to hold a meeting to discuss the matter later this week, but are thought that they are likely to broadly align around the UEFA calendar.
