According to Sky Sports, the transfer window will open this week for clubs in the premier league. Therefore, EPL clubs would soon be set to start spending much sooner than expected.
The Summer transfer window usually runs at the start of July to the end of August. But the Premier League’s decision to bring forward the deadline date this year means the start date will also likely be moved.
Sky Sports reports states the Premier League plan to open the transfer window on Thursday.
It is understood that the decision was made in order to conform with FIFA’s transfer rules. And could likely trigger a spending spree before the World Cup in Russia.
The 2017-18 Premier League season just ended last Saturday with Manchester City officially crowned Champions.
