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.
