Media: FIFA set to approve changes today to reform the transfer market
25 September 2019
A key committee at FIFA is set to approve a series of proposed changes that will reform the transfer market.
Among the proposals is a limit to the power of the players' agents.
FIFA also wants to limit and then reduce the number of non-club-trained players the clubs are allowed to loan out.
When Gianni Infantino was elected president of FIFA in 2016, he vowed to tame the transfer market, which is worth more than £5 billion a year globally.
Now, according to the New York Times, a key committee at FIFA is set to approve a series of proposals that will reform the transfer market, mirroring Infantino's intentions. The proposals will be the subject of a committee meeting today.
Among FIFA's proposed reforms is one limiting the power of the players' agents.
