Zinedine Zidane calls for transfer market to be closed before season starts across Europe

Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has voiced his support to calls for the summer transfer window to close, before the new season begins across Europe.

On Thursday, English Premier League (EPL) clubs voted to shut the 2018 close-season transfer window before the start of the 2018/2019 campaign.

This followed complaints from club managers, that transfer activity disturbs their preparations.

The transfer window in Europe’s other major leagues still runs until August 31, meaning clubs outside England could buy players from English top-flight teams after the new Premier League deadline.

“I think the same thing as most people do.

“The transfer window must be stopped when the league restarts. When official competition restarts, it must stop, that’s clear.

“We can’t change our team during competition, that’s what I think and that’s the opinion of most people” in world of soccer,”Zidane said.
