The reason for the move is because the Premier League voted to bring forward the transfer deadline to August 9 this year.

Fixtures for the upcoming 2018-19 Premier League season will be published on June 14 at 9:00 BST - which is, coincidentally, the same day that the World Cup starts.

The sensible clubs will look to get the majority of their business done early - as Manchester City did by announcing the signing of Bernardo Silva last May, closely followed by the capture of Ederson a few days later - but even City took it to the wire with their failed attempt to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in August.

It opened on Monday, May 7 for domestic transfers.

The Premier League had already introduced that they'd shut the window on August 9, previous to the beginning of subsequent season, in an effort to keep away from disruption as soon as the marketing campaign is underneath method.

In early September 2017, the headline news was that from now on the window would close before the season kicked off.

Sky Sports claim the Premier League want to open the window on Thursday.

Following Manchester City's dominant campaign that saw them break numerous records and earn Pep Guardiola's first Premier League win in just his second term with the club, the football world will be eager to see whether or not they will be able to continue their thrilling form in the upcoming season. They will still be able to loan players and register players that are free agents up until August 31, 2018.

"Then we wouldn't have the situation of sometimes a player plays game number one for a team and game number two for another team". With uncertainty as to who is running their teams, what are the chances of those clubs rolling out a smart, strategic transfer strategy later this week, created to avoid a panic-stricken spending spree in the first week of August?

A number of big-money transfers are tipped to go through this summer.

'The dates may slightly vary from year to year'.

To preserve the overall time frame when deals can be done, Federation Internationale de Football Association now requires the Premier League to bring forward the opening date of the summer window, which will be effective immediately.
