In the summer transfer season of 2022, Spanish clubs spent a total of 305.65 million euros on strengthening them, but Real Madrid and Barcelona have almost accounted for this figure. The appearances of Tchouameni, Raphinha, and Lewandowski (not to mention Kounde) alone account for 60% of that number.
However, this amount is the lowest figure since the 2012/13 La Liga season. Remember, in the summer of 2018/19, La Liga spent more than 1 billion euros on the market, helping this tournament to be on par with the Premier League at that time.
With the latest contract of Kounde, Barca officially became the team that spent the most on the summer transfer market this summer with a figure of 153 million euros. This is said to be quite a surprise because just a year ago, Barca was still struggling to pay off a huge debt.
Spending so much, but not necessarily Barca does not have money. In addition, with the person who is enjoying their highest salary – De Jong can leave, Barca is expected to bring in more new contracts for the rest of this year’s transfer window.
In addition to spending to buy the best players, this summer, La Liga transfer news also witnessed the leaving of strikers as free transfers. Typically, such as Ousmane Dembele – one of the most expensive players of all time. Due to the unsuccessful acquisition of the club or the player, Barca will almost certainly lose him for free when his contract expires on 30 June. Or Adnan Januzaj (Real Sociedad) is also expected to leave the club as soon as possible. In addition, Dani Alves (Barcelona), Isco (Real Madrid), and Luis Suarez (Atletico Madrid) are also looking for new destinations right after the season ends.
La Liga 2022/23 is expected to start on August 12 local time and end the campaign on June 4, 2023. Thus, La Liga’s next season ends later than usual because in November. and in December, La Liga will have to pause from November 21 to December 18 for the national teams to play the World Cup finals in Qatar. However, that’s just a tentative schedule.
This is the 92nd season of Spain’s No.1 club football tournament being held. Real Madrid and Barcelona are considered the top two candidates for the championship while Atletico Madrid or Sevilla continue to play the challenge.
A total of twenty teams compete in the tournament, including seventeen from the 2021–22 season and three promoted from the Segunda División 2021–22. This includes the top two teams from the Segunda División and the winners of the promotion playoffs.
According to the schedule, the first 16 rounds will take place before the World Cup kicks off. Round 16 took place on the weekend of November 12 and 13 before the time to start gathering the team on November 14.
