What can we expect in the summer transfer window 2023/24?
In the last summer transfer window, Premier League outfits splashed £1.9 billion to secure their crucial targets. With clubs still deciding on their new owners and managers, we can expect them to enter the transfer window a bit late but make hasty decisions. With all the ingredients in place, this summer’s transfer window has the potential to shatter previous records and become one of the most monumental in history. As clubs seek to strengthen their ranks, we can also anticipate the departure of prominent names from their current clubs in pursuit of new opportunities. Additionally, some clubs may opt not to extend certain players’ contracts to achieve tactical flexibility.
