Finest human being of all time
Your common sense should tell you that the PL will likely not allow this to go into effect if the consequence will be an unfair advantage for PL clubs.Common sense?
Clubs can have their players snatched from them during the start of the season from foreign clubs.
The only thing we've done is put ourselves in a weaker position for Madrid, Barca etc to take advantage and we can't even buy a replacement if Eriksen or Dele refuses to play and hands in a request.
Anyhow, what is this nonsense about "snatched"? Why would a club be compelled to sell someone during that week? Is there some new rule proposed that says if a club gets an offer during that week they're not allowed to say no and keep the player?
