Early transfer deadline puts some clubs at risk: Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho understands why Manchester United voted against closing the transfer window early and admitted it will put English clubs at a disadvantage.

Premier League clubs voted in favour of shutting the window for buying players the Thursday before the 2018-19 season starts, though as things stand other competitions and leagues will still be able to buy players from the English top flight while their own windows remain open.

United, who face Stoke today, were one of five clubs - along with neighbours Manchester City - to vote against the shortened window, even though Mourinho himself is in favour of the move from his perspective as a coach.

"When the decision is not uniform around Europe, we are opening an element of disadvantage for the English clubs," Mourinho said. "That was the reason why United voted against it, because there is an element of disadvantage.

"There will be a time where the market is closed for us but open for others. They can leave English clubs without the possibility of a quick action so it's a weakness.

"I expect my club to be strong enough that when the market closes for us, we can also close our doors. But there are other English clubs that will be at risk."
