Woodward Needs All the Help He Can Get! “Clubs agree to change end date of Summer Transfer Window!”

Great news, Manchester United fans. Premier League clubs have agreed to move the end of the summer transfer window back to the end of August, instead of closing the night before the season starts.

Given our difficulty signing players in general, the news coming out of the Premier League today will be welcomed by most United fans. With the added difficulty of signing players when there is summer tournament (Euros 2020), this news will give Woodward and Co. an extra 3-weeks to pull off their transfer strategy (assuming there is one).

The clock is ticking already Eddy…time to get your list together and get moving!

More info from the PremierLeague.com below:

At a Shareholders’ Meeting today, Premier League clubs voted to adopt a change to the Summer Transfer Window closing date for season 2020/21.

This will move the closing date back to the traditional point at the end of August/early September.

The 2020 closing date will therefore be 17:00 BST on 1 September (31 August 2020 being a UK Bank Holiday). 

Clubs agreed after discussing the topic at length at previous Shareholders’ Meetings.

About Alex 67 Articles
My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
