Mourinho okays transfer window change

By Daily Sports on September 9, 2017

Manchester United will be "strong and powerful" despite the risks that come with closing the transfer window earlier, says manager Jose Mourinho.

United voted against the proposal passed on Thursday for next year's summer window to shut before the 2018-19 Premier League season starts.

"There's a disadvantage where the market is closed for us and open for others," said Mourinho.

"But when we close our doors, we close the market for others too."

The Portuguese was in favour of the proposal voted for by 14 Premier League clubs - the minimum needed for the plans to be approved.

However, his club, Manchester City, Watford, Swansea and Crystal Palace all voted against, while Burnley abstained.

The next summer window across Europe runs until 31 August. The Premier League's move means while clubs will be able to sell until that date, buying activity will cease on 9 August for the 2018-19 season.

Mourinho added: "I want to arrive at day one with my squad and players, I don't want to be waiting for late decisions - that's the perspective of the coach."

But there is another perspective - I have to share the problems the board have. When a decision is not uniform around Europe, obviously we are opening an element of disadvantage for the English clubs.

"That was the reason why United voted against."But he added: "I expect United to be strong and powerful enough when the market closes."
