When IPL meets club Football....

The 2017 summer transfer window came to an end in most of the European countries last night and the Spanish window is set to get over later tonight and in Portugal, after another three weeks.

Almost all the clubs did a fantastic job in the last two months (Arsenal and Barcelona be like, seriously?!). The biggest buy of the window was Brazilian forward Neymar, who was signed by PSG for a whopping €222 million. Apart from him, Kylian Mbappe to PSG, Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, Alvaro Morata to Chelsea, Ousmane Dembele to Barcelona were some of the high-profile signings.

The excitement among the football fans during this two-month period is as much as the buzz cricket fans (at least a majority of the Indians) create during the Indian Premier league (IPL).

However, wouldn't it be great if the IPL had a transfer window like the Football clubs as well?

What all could happen? The Feeder clubs, the club that will buy success, the costliest player, free agents, transfer fee etc. Several unimaginable things in the cricketing circles will become a reality.

Let us take a look at six things that could happen if IPL had a transfer window like the Football clubs.

Note: IPL has a two-month long transfer window where teams can transfer players from some other franchises. But, the number of transfers (all low-profile ones) taking place throughout the IPL transfer window is probably less than the number of transfers that take place in the last one hour of the transfer deadline day in Football.
