Premier League clubs to consider closing transfer window before season

Premier League clubs to consider closing transfer window before season”

With plenty of time until deadline day, The Grapevine has the very latest football transfer news from the Premier League's top clubs in our round-up below.

The selling clubs will still think they can get a bit more and hold out for more money.

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.

Part of the reason is to avoid internal discord affecting certain clubs once the season is off and running.

Ronaldo hogs headlines as Real down Barca
Zidane's charges broke the deadlock five minutes into the second half, as Gerard Pique turned Marcelo's cross into his own net. There seems little doubt that Barcelona , and especially Leo Messi and Luis Suarez will be keen to impress.

The current window, in line with many other European leagues, closes on 31 August, nearly three weeks after the start of the Premier League season.

EFL clubs are to debate changes to the summer transfer window next month.

The Aug. 31 deadline was imposed by UEFA to ensure that players could not be transferred between clubs during the Champions League and Europa League group stages.

Swansea City boss Paul Clement, who had to leave Gylfi Sigurdsson out of the team that played Southampton due to interest in the player from Everton, called for an early end to the transfer window over the weekend.

Anthony Scaramucci: Trump Needed to Be 'Much Harsher' to White Supremacy
Scaramucci blasted Bannon in an oft-quoted New Yorker interview that featured the man known as "the Mooch" uttering blue language. Scaramucci said he spoke with the president "this week" and that the two "had a very candid conversation".

John Percy of the Telegraph reports that clubs will have to have their business completed before the kick off of their first Premier League game of the 2018/19 campaign with the chances already at "approval level". "The majority of clubs are in favour, but maybe all have to be for it to go through".

As Europe's major leagues all start at different points - France was a week before England, with Spain, Italy and Germany a week after - a Europe-wide change is not going to happen.

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.

We hear managers all too frequently complaining that the window has not gone to plan so far even after the season has started but that they are hoping to bring in a number of new faces before it closes.
