      As someone that’s potentially looking to become an expat in a few years, how will it affect me?

      How difficult will it become for me to live and, possibly/probably, work??

      Typically, this all arrived just as me and the wife are toying with the idea of moving to Spain!

      Simple answer Johnny – do it before December 2020 and nothing changes. If you wait then we will onow more and be able to give you a definitive answer once the withdrawal agreements are finalised later this year. We have a number of champions operating in Spain and we will bring you all of the news on our country specific pages.

      I suspect “wait and see” is going to be the answer to most questions at the minute. For all concerned, top to bottom!

      An added problem would be getting a work visa, as I work in the “entertainment” sector I feel visas might be a lot more problematic than for someone in a specific profession?

      I have mates from the UK who already live in EU states and a couple from other EU countries who now live and work in the UK.Both sides have equal concerns. There will have to be a uniform agreement otherwise what will happen to football player transfers between the two as an example.

      The sheer amount of money involved in football and transfers will ensure there’s no difficulties would be my guess!

      It’ll be a different story for someone thats going to work in the service industries.

      There won’t be any difference for football transfers between the UK and South America/Africa/Far East etc but there will have to be agreements between European Countries and the UK. I don’t see why football should be given preference over the ‘entertainment sector’ or ‘service sectors’. Picking fruit/veg is more important to most people than watching some grossly overpaid footballer kicking a ball.
