UEFA president Michel Platini has called for a reform to the transfer window, labelling the current system as “robbery.”
With Real Madrid on the verge of paying 100 million euros ($132 million) for Gareth Bale, Platini says something needs to change.
Platini says “I think transfers are a robbery ... it’s an opportunity for a lot of people to make a lot of money.”
Platini is to push for the transfer window to be shortened and to that end is looking into the possibility of all European leagues starting at the same time.
The UEFA president also reiterated his stance against goal-line technology, saying it is akin to opening Pandora’s Box.
