La Liga spending goes over €800m mark in ONE MONTH

La Liga clubs have spent over €800m on transfers in June 2019, with €808m spent since the end of the 2018-19 season.

Clubs from across the Spanish top flight have been splashing the cash as they prepare for the new campaign, and the current figure is expected the previous record of €887 – set in 2018.

In comparison to other leagues in Europe, La Liga has led the way in spending in recent weeks, with the Bundesliga the closest, after spending €434m on new players.

Italy, England and France are way behind both leagues, with respective totals of €352m, €197m and €36m, at this stage. 

Real Madrid are the biggest spenders in Europe, with €303m already spent on Luka Jovic, Eden Hazard, Rodrygo, Eder Militao and Ferland Mendy, as part of Zinedine Zidane's transfer spending spree – far surpassing their 2018-19 total of €146m.

FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are both expected to see their totals boosted by the respective purchases of Antoine Griezmann and Joao Felix, with Frenkie De Jong, Felipe Monteiro and Marcos Llorente the only arrivals at either club so far in pre-season.
