Transfer window officially opens

Friday 10 June 2022 07:00

For all of the speculation swirling around social media, the summer transfer window has only officially opened for Premier League clubs today (Friday).

As is the case every year, the rumour mill has been in overdrive with Manchester United being linked with scores of players from across the globe, something we try to keep track of in our daily Media Watch column.

Of course, that has not stopped some teams confirming deals have been agreed but the window is now actually open and will remain so for 84 days, or two months and 23 days.

The deadline has been set as 23:00 BST on Thursday 1 September.

The Premier League will be off and running long before then, with the top-flight campaign kicking off early, around the weekend of 6/7 August, due to the subsequent interruption caused by the staging of the winter World Cup in Qatar.

The fixtures will be released next Thursday, 16 June at 09:00 BST.

Clubs will then be unable to do business, unless signing free agents, until the January window opens in 2023, following the resumption of the league on 26 December.

As per last season's rules, top-flight teams cannot register more than two players on loan at the same time, and if they take the maximum two, they must be from different clubs.

Anybody signed during the current window cannot then be loaned to another Premier League side before the deadline.

Last year, United signed four senior players during the summer transfer window.

Tom Heaton (Aston Villa), Raphael Varane (Real Madrid), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus) all joined the club.

Any information on incomings and outgoings this time around will be confirmed first on our official channels, including the United App and
