I appreciate there is a World Cup thread but a different question here. As we know, ‘it’s hard to do business during a big tournament’. Then we have the ‘Pogba goes to LA for a month’ period where players are on the beach seemingly with the non-instagram functions on their phones turned off. Thing is, with the FA having the bright idea to handicap the PL teams by closing the window before the season starts - that leaves a very small ‘window’ to do deals within the window. Considering most of the money on the market flows from England, the summer will be manic. I suspect that the market will be on steroids for like 3 weeks from late July to early August.
