The transfer window to be extended

It was reported that FIFA is considering extending the dates of this summer’s transfer window due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Football is facing big crisis and is getting ready for the recession, ас many competitions around the world have been suspended for weeks as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

 

A lot of teams reduced the salaries of their players due to the frozen revenues and now FIFA is considering how to ease the clubs even more.


 

Officials of the European football held talks on Tuesday and they are still determined to finish their domestic campaigns by June 30.

 

FIFA is considering to extend the transfer window from June to January in order to help the clubs, because in that way the season would be finished and the clubs will be able to collect their television rights which will ease their financial status.


 

The consequences of the coronavirus crisis is going to cause many problems for the club owners as it will cause to dip into their pockets in order to fund new additions to the club.

 

According to The Telegraph, adapting the investment to the sporting development of the season could favour an extension of the transfer window.

 

It is known that FIFA does not consider the transfer market as a top priority at the moment, but The Telegraph report that chief executives have supported lengthening the next transfer market so that money can flow while football recovers.
