The Premier League summer transfer window opens on Thursday.

We at last now have the very final confirmation of when the Premier League Summer Transfer Window opens.

And that could trigger a spending spree before the World Cup.

Next season undoubtedly has a slew of treats and surprises, such as who will be named successor to Arsene Wenger at Arsenal and whether or not Antonio Conte will get the axe after guiding Chelsea to a disappointing fifth-placed finish in the Premier League table. It was decided last August that the transfer window will now close on August 9 instead of the regular August 31 , allowing clubs to would avoid further interruptions with transfers after getting their season underway.

Press Association Sport understands officials have opted to pull the opening back to next Thursday in order to comply with a FIFA rule which requires at least one window to open for 12 weeks.

Clubs voted in to bring the transfer deadline forward to August 9 this year - two days before the season starts. "But there are so many reasons why it's nearly impossible to get all your business done early".

Following Manchester City's dominant campaign that saw them break numerous records and earn Pep Guardiola's first Premier League win in just his second term with the club, the football world will be eager to see whether or not they will be able to continue their thrilling form in the upcoming season.

'EFL clubs will still be able to sign players on loan until August 31.

Another obstacle to early business is that player contracts do not expire until June 30, so most business must wait until the beginning of July. If Belgium reach the latter stages, will Marouane Fellaini be prepared to wait until mid-July before moving as a free agent from Manchester United, or would it be wiser to agree to a deal before Russian Federation to ensure that he is not distracted by concerns over his future?

The Premier League has confirmed the transfer window will open at midnight on May 17. If they decide to cash in on a player, he can not then be replaced until January, but if the money is too good to turn down, which route do they take?

For a long time we knew that it would end on Thursday 9 August at 5pm but for whatever date it would open was left in the dark. Some of them will be costly.
