Unlike last season, the summer transfer window in Ligue 1 will not close on 31 August, but 24 hours later.
The countdown begins. There is now less than a week left for the Ligue 1 teams to be expected to be strong. But unlike previous seasons, the transfer window will not close at 11:59 PM on 31 August, but 24 hours later. it will be closed this friday 1er Sept. 11:59 p.m. and exactly 59 seconds. Then it will be too late to recruit. The same would be the case for most of the European Championships (England, Italy, Spain, Germany).
Open till 20 September in Saudi Arabia
If clubs are no longer able to afford the services of new players, they may see some of their players move elsewhere. Because later the transfer market in other countries will be closed. As in Turkey, where it will end only on 15 September, in Belgium, where it will be possible to recruit until 6 September, or in Switzerland (7 September). Also in Saudi Arabia.
While the wealthy Gulf country has been very active in the transfer market, recruiting a number of stars such as Karim Benzema, Sadio Mane and Neymar, the transfer window in the Saudi Pro League will not end until 20 September.
