Premier League Announce Transfer Window Changes That Could Impact United’s Summer Plans

The Premier League have confirmed that the summer transfer window will open a day after the end of the season on July 27th.

Due to the extended break in fixtures, it was decided that transfers would not be allowed from June 8th as first planned as it would have conflicted with the resumption of the league season.

There has also been a change in when the window will close. Originally, it was scheduled to shut at the end of August but this has now been extended to October 5th.


Under FIFA regulations, however, countries are allowed a 12-week window but this one will only be 10 weeks as the Premier League wanted to fall in line with other European countries who are also scheduled to close their windows at the beginning of October.

With two weeks still available, an agreement has been reached with the EFL so a domestic window can stay open until October 16th.

For United, this means any player signed from abroad or another Premier League team must be registered by October 5th, while any player signed from an EFL club could be signed up until the later deadline.
