Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta claims the Premier League’s decision to close the transfer window earlier from next year is “wise”.
The Italian also indicated he would be keen to see other league’s follow suit in a bid to end squad disruption for managers.
Clubs in England’s top tier voted unanimously in favour of the changes this afternoon, with the summer window set to close at 5pm on the Thursday before the season kicks-off in 2018.
However, the decision was criticised by fans on social media, with the majority concerned it would hand the initiative to foreign clubs as they would be free to sign Premier League talent with English clubs having no time to look at replacements.
Marotta’s comments suggest otherwise though, with Italian clubs perhaps keen to see similar changes to their transfer window:

It’s unclear at this stage whether other Serie A teams would follow Juventus into implementing the change.
