World Cup, new transfer window dates will impact Premier League business

The rule only affects players bought by a Premier League club - and teams in England will still be allowed to sell players to other leagues in which the transfer window is open.

Liverpool star forward Mohamed Salah broke his own records this season by breaking the record for most goals scored in a single 38-game season (scoring his 32nd against Brighton on the final day), snatching the Golden Boot from previous holder Harry Kane.

And that could trigger a spending spree before the World Cup. Just let that sink in as you continue to assess your team's campaign during the 2017-18 season or look ahead to the FA Cup final or Champions League final in Kiev on May 26. It was decided last August that the transfer window will now close on August 9 instead of the regular August 31 , allowing clubs to would avoid further interruptions with transfers after getting their season underway.

EFL clubs (40 for) also voted in favour of falling in line with the Premier League's new deadline meaning they will adopt the same rules.

This week, the Premier League will confirm that the transfer window will open early to ensure that they keep in check with Federation Internationale de Football Association regulations that state at least one window per season must be open for 12 weeks.

The regulations of the world's governing body state that every league must have at least one transfer window in a calendar year that lasts for 12 weeks. Selling clubs, especially those overseas, are in no rush to sell early because they know that English clubs are now even more likely to panic and pay exorbitant fees if they have to get their business done by August 9. Clubs involved in play-offs can sign players now - but cannot play them until their season is over.

EFL clubs will still be able to sign players on loan until August 31.

Another obstacle to early business is that player contracts do not expire until June 30, so most business must wait until the beginning of July.

The World Cup is usually seen as shop window for many players wanting to get a move. If they decide to cash in on a player, he can not then be replaced until January, but if the money is too good to turn down, which route do they take? Some of them will be costly.
