FIFA President Gianni Infantino plans to revolutionise football, scrapping the January transfer market, limiting loans and introducing a salary cap.

According to French newspaper L’Equipe, an 11-point plan will be discussed by the committee on February 28.

It’s believed the plans include removing the January transfer window and limiting the market so that it doesn’t overlap with competitive matches.

This was a proposal put forward by the English Premier League and certain Serie A clubs, who feel it is too distracting.

This was a proposal put forward by the English Premier League and certain Serie A clubs, who feel it is too distracting.

Another issue could be a real problem for Juventus and Udinese, the clubs who perhaps more than any other buy up talent only to loan them out via a network of other teams.

“It is important to include certain rules, such as limiting the number of players a club can own and loan out,” noted Infantino.

A salary cap could also be introduced, as Infantino found the “trend to be worrying, which is reason enough to act. We must protect the values that made football what it is.”

In a similar vein, commissions paid to agents and intermediaries can also be cut down.
