How does the Spanish league make the best use of players?
The Liga de Fútbol de Madrid (LFP) has announced that all Spanish footballers will be eligible for free transfers this summer.
The decision was welcomed by clubs, but there was also some criticism that it was too easy to be sold in this year’s transfer window.
The league will offer more incentives to buy players, and players with a contract will receive bonus points for the first year of their deal.
The Spanish Supercopa de España (CSCE) will also be free for all, as the league will no longer be able to penalise teams for playing the Spanish side.
The LFP will now have more flexibility in terms of signing players from overseas.
However, the move comes just a month after the LFP and CSCE signed a new deal that will see the clubs offer the player a free transfer to the La Liga side for the duration of the season, according to the Telegraph.
The deal is worth around €8.7m, with a further €7.5m available for bonuses.
The move was hailed as a positive move, with the CSCE saying the agreement will “add a new dimension” to the club’s business, while also offering a better chance of securing players for the Spanish team.
The La Liga’s chief executive, José Luis Sánchez-Sáncherez, praised the move, saying: “This is the best moment in our history.
We’ve had great years and we’re at a turning point, which has allowed us to sign players from the world, from the US, Europe and even China.”
We’re now able to attract and develop new talent to our squad, which will bring a wealth of new experiences for the players and fans.
“We are committed to working with clubs, players and coaches to reach our objectives and make this season more exciting.”
