- Every summer, the soccer transfer window slams shut in 53 countries across the globe and as a result, the transfer deadline period is one of the busiest and most dramatic of the season.

All four episodes of Deadline Day: Football’s Transfer Window premiere on Peacock on February 15.
Deadline Day is a ground-breaking insight into the most talked about but least understood aspect of modern soccer: the transfer market. With unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to world class players and Europe’s premier agents, the series unmasks the men whose job it is to make soccer players’ dreams a reality and, for the first time, reveals how headline-grabbing multimillion dollar deals get done.
Shot across summer 2022 with contributions from journalists, sporting directors and club owners including Crystal Palace’s Steve Parish, Leeds United’s Andrea Radrizzani and West Ham’s David Sullivan, Deadline Day takes viewers inside some of the market’s most talked about moves. Cameras follow Fabian Ruiz and his agent Rodolfo Orife as his move to join his hero Lionel Messi at PSG hangs in the balance. German agent Sascha Empacher brokers a deal for Sasa Kalajdžić’s move to Wolverhampton Wanderers, while relentless press speculation linking the Austrian forward to Manchester United creates an unwelcome distraction.
As the clock ticks down, Japhet Tanganga makes a fateful decision, Martin Dubravka moves to Manchester United, Florian Grillitsch signs for Dutch giants Ajax, and Manchester City’s Omar Berrada opens up on how the club snared superstar Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
Deadline Day unravels the knot of real human motivations behind each headline-grabbing deal, revealing the operatic narratives of triumph, power, and ambition behind football’s biggest transfers.
