Premier League Sides Demand Summer Transfer Window Extension

Premier League Sides Demand Summer Transfer Window Extension

Manchester United are reportedly spare heading a host of Premier League sides to put league chiefs under pressure to push the summer transfer window deadline to the end of August.

A number of clubs were left frustrated this year as the cut-off date for premier league transfer window dates was set to August 9, meaning that top-flight teams had to finalize their transfer window signings before a ball had been kicked.

Daily Mail reports that Man United are leading a move to force league officials to return to the old format from 2019, preventing foreign clubs from swooping for the top stars.

A source at an elite club is quoted by the publication as saying: “If Chelsea had lost Eden Hazard to Real Madrid, they would not have been able to replace him.

“Moves are often triggered when the selling club know they have a replacement lined up and that also affected the number of deals done. This put English clubs at a disadvantage.”

A vote will take place in November to settle on how many Premier League clubs are in favor of a return to the end-of-August deadline.
