When does the transfer window close in La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and Ligue 1? All the European closing times


The window is winding down yet clubs remain desperate to splash yet more cash in the closing days.

Fear not, haters of transfer rumours. The window is very, very nearly closed.

Premier League clubs have until 11pm on Thursday night to finalise any last business as they look to confirm their squads for the last time until January.

But while clubs have a limited amount of time to secure their incomings, there is a little while longer for some European clubs to secure improvements to their squads.

A universal transfer window closing time has not yet been introduced, meaning every club around the continent is working to their own country’s deadline.

But what are those deadlines? Here’s all you need to know…

When does the transfer window close?

The window is already shut in Brazil , China , Norway , Sweden , Japan, USA and Canada .

Germany is the next major league to close the window at 5pm UK time (BST) on Thursday, August 31.

Which European clubs can we expect to be most active?

Paris Saint-Germain have already smashed the world record transfer fee this summer with the £200m arrival of Neymar from Barcelona.

Kylian Mbappe is expected to follow, in a fee that would have broken the previous record.

Their Ligue 1 rivals Monaco have been active late in the window and could yet make further additions.

Meanwhile, Barcelona could yet make a late swoop for Philippe Coutinho, but Liverpool remain firm in their stance that he will not be sold this summer.

Mbappe is expected to replace Monaco with PSG

When does the window open again?

Almost universally across Europe, the transfer window will re-open as soon as the new year strikes on January 1.

Clubs will then have another month to make additions to their squads for the run-in until the end of the season.
