The summer transfer window has officially closed with clubs all around Europe producing some great business ahead of what is bound to be a hectic few months of action. While much of the attention has gone on the Premier League, we’re here today to have a look at the top five incoming transfers in La Liga.
Spanish football has surrendered its role as the kings of the beautiful game in recent years, but the hope is that they can climb back to the top of the mountain in the near future – and these guys could help them do just that.
Yannick Carrasco – Dalian Professional to Atletico Madrid
After a surprise two-year stint over in China, Yannick Carrasco made his return to Atletico Madrid back in January of this year. He clearly impressed enough to warrant being signed on a permanent basis and when you take his age of 27 into consideration, this feels like a no-brainer of a move for Atletico. They understand that they need to keep busy in the market if they want to stay in the race for the title, and this signing serves as evidence of that.
David Silva – Manchester City to Real Sociedad
He might be a veteran in this sport but that doesn’t mean he isn’t still going to bring some serious value to whichever club he decides to play for. David Silva made the somewhat surprising switch from Manchester City to Real Sociedad earlier on in the summer, and we’d argue it was a pretty shrewd business move from Sociedad. He’s still a competitive player and he already seems to be making an impact for the club.
Suso – AC Milan to Sevilla
It says a lot about Suso that he was signed on an 18-month loan deal back in January, and just six months into that deal, he was signed permanently by Sevilla. He could be the catalyst behind this side doing some big things over the next few years, and it’s somewhat surprising to see that he hasn’t been snatched up by an even bigger club.
Luis Suarez – Barcelona to Atletico Madrid
The veteran and controversial Uruguay striker made some immediate noise after signing for Atletico Madrid from Barcelona, proving early on that he isn’t done by a long shot amongst the European elites. Suarez is a natural-born goalscorer and if he can carry on the kind of form he’s been producing in recent weeks, his legacy will continue to grow.
Sergino Dest – Ajax to Barcelona
This 19-year-old has been tipped to do some very special things in the world of football and now, he’ll be doing them for Barcelona at the Nou Camp. Barca had to rebuild after a disastrous end to last season and they’ve done just that, with Dest being their most appealing signing in years.
