The five best summer deals in La Liga so far.
The Spanish top flight has been a hive of activity so far this summer, as its clubs continue to foster some of the world’s finest talent. Big money has been spent, but who has made the smartest additions? Below is the top five deals that have been conducted by La Liga clubs so far this summer.
5. Luis Suarez: Liverpool to Barcelona – £75m
The controversial Uruguayan will undoubtedly be a fine signing for the Catalan giants, but at £75m he represents a huge risk. Despite never being sent off during his time at Anfield, he clocked up some significant banning orders for both biting and racial abuse.
Barcelona will be aware of his antics tarnishing their image, and furthermore he will be missing for the first few months of the season with his latest suspension. However, upon retuning he will be lining up alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar to form what will quite possibly be the most fearsome front line in world football.
