Only three Premier League clubs will be able to spend money on transfers this summer, an agent has told former Liverpool and Tottenham director of football Damien Comolli.
Comolli, who was in charge of transfers in his role at both clubs, believes this “window will be very different” due to the financial impact of the coronavirus.
“An agent was telling me the other day, that there are actually only three clubs in the Premier League will be able to spend money next summer in the transfer window,” Comolli said.
“I don’t know if this is correct but usually when agents tell you things like this, they usually get intel.
“We might see very little transfer activity, we might see swaps, we might see loans and I think we are going to see a massive decrease in transfer fees and transfer activity, at least transfers involving money.
“The longer this crisis goes on, more clubs are going to be in a financially difficult situation. The first thing that will be impacted will be player remuneration, the second thing will be transfer fees.”
The clubs include; Liverpool, Man city and Manchester United.
