A number of clubs in the English football pyramid face the prospect of relying on player sales to bolster their finances because the 2020/21 campaign is likely to be played behind closed doors.
FIFA have already discussed keeping the next transfer window open all the way to January but they could now extend it further into the third month of the year. Before the transfer window system was implemented in 2002, clubs had until the third Thursday of March to finalise their squads.
The globe’s governing body have been talking to major leagues, federations and agents about the best way to operate the next transfer window.
It is feared the next transfer window will be a quiet affair due to financial concerns of clubs. The market could be dominated by swap deals in a bid to freshen up squads.
