Players can also be sold to clubs in a country whose window is still open or join non-league sides at any stage of the season.

There is still under a month, then, for plenty of exciting transfer action to take place.

Man United and Chelsea will be hoping they can get a deal for Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong over the line after a drawn out summer of negotiations.

Meanwhile, it remains to be seen if Erik ten Hag will be able to include Ronaldo as part of his first season at Old Trafford, with the Portuguese star still reportedly keen to leave in order to play Champions League football this season.

Elsewhere, Gabriel Jesus joined Arsenal from Man City, Jules Kounde signed for Barcelona and Timo Werner has returned to Leipzig.

When is the next transfer window?

The next transfer window occurs just after Christmas, with the winter transfer market open from January 1, 2023.

It will run for the whole month, closing at 11pm on January 31.

This transfer window will follow quickly on the heels of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, which will be held from November 21 to December 18, 2022.

Football leagues across the globe will be taking a mid-season break in order for the World Cup to go ahead, and it is likely many club scouts will be keeping an eye out for any potential breakout stars across the tournament.
