Mahrez situation is one telling us all that
transfer windows are too problematic

Riyad Mahrez again
made it clear that he has no desire to play on at Leicester City, he
is ready to move to a "better place"
Despite seeing the club preparing a new training ground worth in the
region of £ 80 million, attracting new players and the best talent
in the country, and also trying to bring in players, paying heavy
Pundits are still telling everyone about "Little Leicester" who at
the moment are the richest club in The Midlands, a region with more
than 10 million people and can get more than 30 000 inside their
Aston Villa might be a "bigger" club in fanbase, but with growth of
following in the eastern parts of this planet and Villa being down
in The Championship, there are Stoke and West Bromwich to compete
Mahrez is told by everyone that Leicester is not
a place to be, and he is eager to get away, despite winning The
Premier League and reaching the Quarter Finals of The Champions
League. Both fantastic happenings that no one would describe as
The transfer window system in itself is based heavilly on deadlines
and to see clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal, Man Utd, Man City and
several others upsetting both players and other clubs trying to get
a player in the late hours before the deadline is rubbish.
The transfer window closes on different dates in different
countries, and that also upsets the situation. Football is a trade,
buying and selling are parts of it and that should be possible to do
during a season, and hopefully you should be confirming an approch
in stead of a deal.
An approach should be send to FA about a player
and registered as an official bid, when that bid is registred, and
based on a timeline on how long it stands, as when you are bidding
for a house. When the accept is there, then they signing is agreed.
This means that the officials needs to brush up their system and
really start organising this better. This is a not a club problem,
not a player problem its a system based on no real professionalism
by the FA, FIFA and others making this problematic.
To see Riyad Mahrez doing what he is doing is a bit strange, but
it's not the first time a player are trying to get a move on, eager
to leave a club and sign for an another, it's part of the game, and
hopefully will be in the future.
