LaLiga, the most crushed by Covid in the sale and purchase of players

The exorbitant amounts that were handled until just a year ago (summer and January 2020) in the transfers of players in Spanish and European football have forgotten by ‘fault’ of the brutal economic crisis derived from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Less money invested and much less movements that require bleeding the coffers, the common denominator in all competitions, although LaLiga has suffered a stronger slap than their European ‘sisters’.

According to a LaLiga study, carried out by ‘PricewaterhouseCoopers’, the drop in income derived from transfers of footballers in Spain last summer, it was 60% compared to the previous year, a percentage higher than the rest of the major European leagues (the Premier 36% and Italy 23%).

When it comes to selling, the coronavirus crisis has weighed down the movements of the vast majority of Spanish clubs, both in the First and Second Division.

The league

The 19/20 season was not so affected (it did not diminish the two transfer markets since the pandemic arrived from March 2020), but lThe projection for 20/21, the current one, points to a 58% drop in income (About 727 million less could be billed).

The economic crisis due to Covid-19 has affected the sale of players in Spain, but He has also played fully when it comes to scratching his pocket to reinforce the clubs. In the 2020-21 campaign, the estimates contemplate that the expense for the purchase of footballers will be can reduce by 66% compared to 19/20. Or what is the same, it is expected 473 million less disbursed by Spanish clubs, the biggest drop when buying to reinforce the squads of all European leagues.
