The main European football leagues have already started their 2022-23 season and there are several teams that continue to look for alternatives to add reinforcements before the deadline for the summer market in Europe, as is the case with the Premier League and LaLiga.

Although this cut-off date does not always coincide for the main leagues, the five most important have a transfer limit of September 1 at 11:59 pm, which includes, in addition to the leagues of Spain and England, Serie A, Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga.

One of the exceptions this summer is the Liga Portugal Bwin, which will leave its market open until September 22, thus allowing its teams to add free players or reach player transfer agreements.

It was quite a busy summer as big names like Erling Haaland, Robert Lewandowski, Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling changed teams for a new campaign. Some players who could define his future in the coming weeks before the deadline include Keylor Navas, Frenkie de Jong and Ander Herrera.

The next transfer window is scheduled for winter, which will open at the beginning of 2023 and will cover the entire month of January, thus providing the opportunity for sales and loans in the middle of the campaign in the main leagues.
