How will Premier League transfer window changes affect the Bundesliga?

Oxlade-Chamberlain played against Liverpool four days before he joined them

Premier League clubs will still be able to sell players to clubs in other leagues, such as those in Europe, whose window is still open.

It has been revealed that Manchester United, Manchester City, Swansea, Crystal Palace and Watford were the clubs who voted against the early closure. Unless the other leagues fall in to line, it would seem that English clubs would be at a disadvantage - with a period of about 3 weeks where they can only sell and wouldn't be able to source replacements.

Opponents of the amendment could point to the benefits afforded by having the first three games of the season to assess a squad and make more informed transfer decisions.

This could create what some believe is a competitive advantage for foreign teams who will have a few extra weeks to buy Premier League players.

Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta said on the club's Twitter feed: "The Premier League's decision to end the transfer window early is wise". The heralded entity will be allowed to transfer players come next season.

"The first transfer window in which this applies will be the summer transfer window in 2018 and it will close on 1700 on Thursday Aug 9, 2018. I think the market should finish when we start the season".

Jones added: "While the transfer record for a single player has again been broken by a major European club, the Premier League's clubs enjoy an unrivalled depth of purchasing power, as a result of the League's relatively equal - and transparent - distribution of broadcast revenues".

Premier League clubs spent a record £1.4 billion ($1.8 billion, 1.5 billion euros) on new players during the 2017 close-season window.

"It was a concern but I wouldn't say it was a real pathological anger about that, it was just one of the concerns that they felt, on balance, meant they couldn't support it".

The proposal needed two-thirds of clubs to back the move and 14 voted in favour, five against with one abstention - with the one club abstaining it needed 13 votes in order to be passed.

The future of players such as Sanchez, Coutinho, Virgil Van Dijk, Ross Barkley and Riyad Mahrez remained unclear up until deadline day. At least until the winter transfer window in January.

The news from Italy is good.

Even though the UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has stated that he would like to see all the European leagues shorten their transfer window, there are no signs that they will do it.
