Infantino set to regulate transfers

FIFA president set to regulate transfers to avoid inflation

February 16, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
Football's governing body will try to put an end to high-money transfers to make the game a bit more fair.

Apparently, the amount of cash splashed to sign Neymar, Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele and many more has sparked alarms among FIFA's top execs, and they are ready to put an end to those high-price transfers.

According to a report by L'Equipe, backed with a recent interview on ESPN, FIFA's main man Gianni Infantino is ready to study a briefing to keep all teams' transfer spending down. The briefing will be studied on February 28, when FIFA's execs hold their meeting in Switzerland.

The 11-point briefing includes several upgrades to football's transfer business. For instance, the winter transfer window woul cease to exist, and if that wasn't enough, all football transfers would end before the beginning of each season.

Speaking about that last issue with ESPN, Infantino has already hinted that the football transfer window will change soon.

"I'm really happy with the Premier League's proposal (to shut the transfer window before the start of the season). It makes a lot of sense to start each season knowing which players you'll have to work with," the president told ESPN.

Changes to all transfers won't stop there, as a salary cap could be used to restrict big-money deals.

"Our system is healthy, since there's a lot of money around, but the tendency we're experiencing is a cause for concern. That's why we have to act. We need to protect the values that made football what it is around the world," Infantino added.

FIFA would also consider setting a limit for the amount of players a team can own, in order to avoid multiple footballers being on loan.

"We are all interested in watching the big players doing their thing, but right now they are all playing in just a few leagues or in the same teams, so we need to change that," FIFA's president concluded.
