European clubs defend transfers

BARCELONA, Spain -- A group representing Europe's football clubs has presented a study that defends football's current transfer system, which the international footballers' union wants to overhaul.

AC Milan director Umberto Gandini said: "We wanted to have a picture of the situation to explain it from inside the industry. We found out the actual transfer system is working."

FIFPro said in December it would go to the European Commission to argue for a reform to the current transfer system it said "shackles" players to clubs.

The European Club Association presented its study of all international transfers involving European clubs from 2011-13 after it concluded its two-day general assembly in Barcelona on Tuesday.

The ECA's study claims the current system "guarantees" player mobility.
