With no indication yet as to when footballing action is set to resume, when the remaining fixtures will be completed or how the delay will affect next season, there is a lot of uncertainty circulating in the footballing world at the moment.
Another potential problem to consider is how the economic slowdown and the financial struggles which some clubs will experience due as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, will affect their ability to spend in the transfer market.
Reports have suggested that Tottenham are already having to reconsider their transfer plans and had to halt their planned discussions with Fenerbache over the possibility of signing striker Vedat Muriqi(Sozcu via Sport Witness).
The Daily Mail claim that the summer transfer window could now be extended until January in order to allow clubs time to complete their transfer business.
The English transfer window was due to open on July 1 and close on August 31 but since it is unclear when the current campaign will end, authorities are said to be considering a radical proposal to have one prolonged transfer window running from the end of the current season until January.
The decision if it receives approval would represent a throwback to pre-transfer window rules when clubs were allowed to buy and sell players all year round.
