FIFA consider transfer window date change

World governing body FIFA is considering changing the dates of this summer's transfer window due to the Coronavirus pandemic. 

The outbreak of the Covid-19 has led to top leagues being suspended indefinitely and this will affects the season's plan. FIFA is chairing a working group on the issue but has yet to reach a decision over whether to delay or extend the next window. The men’s transfer window in England and Scotland opens on June 10. Talks are also taking place over whether to change rules in relation to player’s contracts. 

"On March 18 the Bureau of the FIFA Council decided to establish a FIFA-Confederations Working Group in response to COVID-19. This Working Group will assess the need for amendments or temporary dispensations to the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players’ to protect contracts for both players and clubs and adjusting player registration periods," FIFA spokesperson told Sky Sports News. 

"This work has already started and will be conducted in consultation with all key stakeholders, including confederations, member associations, clubs, leagues, and players."
