Serie A’s transfer window now to close one day before start of season

The Italian summer transfer window will close on August 18 this year, one day before the start of the Serie A season.

The decision to shut the window early follows the example of the Premier League, whose clubs decided in September to bring the transfer deadline forward to Thursday, August 9 this summer, before the season gets underway.

Serie A’s extraordinary commissioner Giovanni Malago also said that the winter transfer window will end before the championship resumes on January 20 following their winter break.
