La Liga v Premier League - who will spend more this summer?

Recommended Posts

Premier League clubs have spent £922m and counting with just seven days remaining until the transfer window closes.

Yet for the first time in more than a decade, they look set to be usurped from the top of the spending table by La Liga's summer spree, which has already passed the £1bn mark for the very first time.

After Spain's dominance in Europe was broken last season, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have all flexed their financial muscle by pulling off three of the 10 biggest transfers of all time.

That has pushed spending by Spanish top-flight clubs to £1.06bn as of midday on 1 August, and with more than a month to go until their transfer window closes, they could close in on the Premier League's record spend of £1.4bn from 2017.

Eden Hazard, Joao Felix and Antoine Griezmann are three of those to head to Spain but other than Arsenal and Manchester City making Nicolas Pepe and Rodri their record signings respectively and Tottenham spending £54m on Tanguy Ndombele, it's been a relatively quiet summer for the English top flight.

But why have Spanish clubs spent so big this summer?

This is a great question to be honest. Instead of Spanish clubs spending big to KEEP their players and pay them competitively or more than the Premier League. They end up spending more on transfer fees and still having to pay competitive salaries. 

La Liga clubs should've worked out long ago that it's the Premier League that buys from them most of the time, not the other way around.
