How Do Transfers Work in European Soccer and the Premier League

The transfer process in European Soccer is often a murky thing that few outside of it truly understand. Trying to explain it to other Americans is always a complicated task. Across the Premier League and all of the leagues in Europe transferring players is a process that is convoluted and so different from what goes on in American sports that finding a simple explanation is not easy.

While it is somewhat easy enough to say that there are two transfer window periods, the actual process of transferring players as opposed to trading players or signing free agents is another matter altogether.

Now there is a more more simple way to tell your friends who don’t know what the football transfer process is with this great infographic seen below.
