Mercato: The 2024 summer transfer window launched earlier than expected?

The 2024 summer transfer window will soon open its doors in France, with the LFP having to decide on the subject on June 5. And it should ultimately start earlier than initially announced.

The club season is almost over. After Olympiakos’ victory on Wednesday evening against Fiorentina (1-0), in the final of the Europa Conference League, all that remains is the Champions League final at Wembley on June 1, between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund. There will then be Euro 2024, the Copa America and the Paris Olympics.

At the same time, the summer transfer window will be in full swing, but the opening date of the transfer market in France has not yet been confirmed. On the FIFA website, its Transfer Matching System (TMS) tool, which allows the registration and control of transfers of football players globally, indicates July 1, 2024 as the opening date of the transfer window in France.

Safonov’s transfer to PSG formalized at the opening of the transfer window

But according to L’Equipe, the correct date will be made official next Wednesday June 5 during the LFP board of directors and some sources mention Monday June 10, 2024 for the opening of the French transfer window. Last year, the French summer transfer window had already started on June 10 and ended on Friday September 1, 2023. In 2024, September 1 falls on a Sunday. It is therefore possible that the transfer window ends on Friday August 30, Saturday August 31 or even Monday September 2.

For PSG, the opening date of the transfer window will have little importance since the club has already completed, according to several sources, the recruitment of Russian goalkeeper Matvey Safonov from Krasnodar and for around €20 million, bonus included. His transfer will be made official when the transfer market opens, probably on June 10 if this date is confirmed. Fabrizio Romano announced today that PSG will make this operation official in June. All that remains is to know when exactly.
