The summer transfer window is less than 24 hours away, giving clubs the best chance to enhance their squads.
The transfer of Erling Haaland to Manchester City for a record fee has set the tone for one of the most thrilling football seasons of the year.
More high-profile departures are expected, with players like Robert Lewandowski and Paul Pogba formally confirming their departures from their respective clubs.
But when does the transfer window officially open, and do all European leagues have the same deadline?
England: Premier League and EFL transfer window
The summer transfer window for the Premier League and the EFL in 2021 began on June 9 and ended on August 31, the same date as the rest of Europe.
However, while the window starts on Friday, June 10, most overseas deals will not close until Friday, July 1.
After that, the transfer market will be open until 11 p.m. on September 1st.
Italy: Serie A transfer window
Italy is anticipated to start their summer transfer window on June 10th, the same day as England, and end it on September 1st, just before the new season begins.
France: Ligue 1 transfer window
France will open its window on June 10 and keep it open until September 1, same like the English leagues.
Spain: La Liga transfer window
Spain is likely to open its summer transfer market on June 10 and close on September 1 in the same manner as Italy.
Clubs can still sign free agents and loan/sell players to leagues with active markets.
Germany: Bundesliga transfer window
The Germans want to follow Italy and Spain’s lead and open on June 10 and close on September 1.
However, rather than 10:59pm UK time – 11:59pm local time, their window is likely to close at 4pm UK time – 5pm local time.
United States: MLS transfer window
The transfer period in Major League Soccer differs greatly from that of other leagues.
Rather than having a winter window in January, the governing bodies have decided on two windows in March and August.
The MLS primary window typically runs from February 10 to May 4 each year.
However, in 2021, their preseason and opening day were postponed, resulting in a primary transfer window that opened on March 10 and finished on June 1.
Fortunately, their preparations for the secondary transfer window, which opens on July 7 and closes on August 5, remained unchanged.
And the primary one this year went through without a hitch, as it is now open and will conclude on May 4.
