Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has given his support to demands for the summer transfer window to close, before the new season begins across Europe.
Following complaints from managers that transfer activity disturbs their preparations, English Premier League clubs on Thursday voted to shut the 2018 close-season transfer window before the start of the 2018/2019 campaign.
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.
According to Zidane, “I think the same thing as most people do. The transfer window must stop 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 football.”
