The 2019/20 La Liga season beckons. There is the usual anticipation that comes with every new season. This year, however, the offseason brought spectacular change. The transfer window doesn't close till 2nd September but already a number of world-class players either switched clubs or arrived from other leagues.
Spanish teams long since surpassed €1 billion in new signings in this window. The usual suspects are splashing the cash. Atletico, Barcelona and Real Madrid account for just under 70% of the €1.2 billion spent. Sevilla also hit the €100 million mark. Spoiler Alert: Real Madrid are the biggest spenders, lavishing €305 million on their roster.
Madridistas will tell you it was necessary after a miserable 2018/19 session. Attentions turn to the footballing side of things this weekend, though. All eyes will be on the new boys to see how they perform. Here are the ten biggest deals of the summer so far.
