MONACO (AP) - UEFA president Michel Platini has called for a reform to the transfer window, labeling the current system a ``robbery.''

With Real Madrid on the verge of paying $132 million for Gareth Bale, Platini says something needs to change.

Platini says ``I think transfers are a robbery ... it's an opportunity for a lot of people to make a lot of money.''

Platini wants the transfer window to be shortened and is looking into the possibility of all European leagues starting at the same time.

The UEFA president reiterated his stance against goal-line technology.
