"As a football manager and not a market man - somebody who wants to work with the team and the players - I would prefer the window to close as soon as possible", stated Mourinho last month.

With the major summer tournaments normally seeing relatively little transfer action whilst they are taking place, it will surely lead to a more frantic situation than normal.

However, clubs from other competitions where the window remains open will still be able to purchase players from the Premier League.

The Football League are yet to decide whether to shorten their own window next summer, but Peterborough supremo MacAnthony is hopeful that they don't follow the Premier League.

Premier League clubs have voted and there will be huge changes to next season's transfer window.

"The transfer window is exhausting", he said recently.

Further, with rumors and speculation running rampant the change will certainly ease some of the tension that the English sides face around deadline day, giving them an opportunity to best train with their squads.

Premier League clubs spent a record £1.4 billion ($1.8 billion, 1.5 billion euros) on new players during the 2017 close-season window.

Whilst the agreement offers a significant number of long-term benefits, these are restricted exclusively to Premier League clubs without affecting the rest of Europe, hence creating a situation in which European super-clubs can benefit.

Manchester United and Manchester City were among five clubs who voted against the Premier League's plans to move up the transfer deadline, a source has confirmed to ESPN FC.

'He knows when and where to change his tactics, to change how the team plays.

"I think what was interesting this year was the resolve of the clubs".

"That is good news", he said.

"We did have managers' meetings before the season started". "I think most managers would say the same".
