The Premier, the older brother who abuses the League in Europe

  • Farewell The emotion and tears of Casemiro (and Ancelotti and Florentino) in his goodbye
  • Opinion Round operation: Casemiro’s double profitability

The Premier League seems determined to decapitalize the Spanish League. The last great offensive of Manchester United to get the signing of Casemiro, for which Real Madrid will receive some 70.6 million euros, is just the tip of the iceberg. The greater purchasing power of its clubs and its almost hypnotic aura of glamour, earned by hand since the 90s of the last century, is all too often completely irresistible. To such an extent, in the case of the Brazilian, that it doesn’t seem to have hurt him in the least to leave the current champion of the Champions League and also stay out of the top continental competition to play in the Europa League in the ranks of a team that has started the competition in a bad way: seeing themselves irrevocably thrown to the bottom of the table, and that Monday’s victory against Liverpool could be a turning point.

United, of course, has pulled the checkbook. The signing of Casemiro, in fact, constitutes a not inconsiderable 41% of the total expense that the English clubs have carried out to fish in the Spanish League: 172 million euros. In fact, the Brazilian is the most expensive signing in the English competition, surpassing names like Haland either Gabriel Jesus. In total, seven footballers have definitely left the First Division to join the Premier, although two of them, the goalkeepers Netwho has signed for Bournemouth from Barcelona, ​​and Joel Robleswho has landed in Leeds from the ranks of Betis, have done so at zero cost, with the letter of freedom under his arm.

Until now, the second most expensive signing in English football (if we talk about fishing in the League) is that of the former Valencian player Guedeswho has joined Wolverhampton after paying 32.6 million euros, although he follows him closely diego charles. The former Sevilla defender, for his part, has become part of the ranks of Aston Villa for 31 million euros (injured, by the way, very seriously in the first league game). Of course, he is not the only player from the League who has signed for the villains. Coutinhoon loan from Barcelona during the final stretch of last season, definitely became one of the team he coaches Steven Gerrardformer fellow sufferer at Liverpool, in exchange for 20 million euros more.

Estupinan, finally, closes for now the list of definitive transfers from the League to the Premier, but not that of transfers from Spain to England. In his case, Brighton agreed with Villarreal a transfer of 17.8 million euros to get his services, but we must also add two players who will act on loan in their respective new clubs. The azulgrana lenglet he will do it at Tottenham, who will take charge of 85% of his record (about seven million euros), while AugustinssonFor his part, he will play for Aston Villa on loan from Sevilla in exchange for around 500,000 euros.

In addition, two more players from Barça, DeJong Y aubameyang, they could end up leaving the mainland for the islands before the summer market closes. The Dutch midfielder is in the sights of both Manchester United and Chelsea and the Catalans, still pending to balance all their numbers, would in principle be willing to let him out in exchange for some 80 million euros. The Gabonese, for his part, is the great objective of the blues to shore up his lead. His last offer would include 18 million euros and the transfer of a Mark Alonso which, apparently, is only pending definitive confirmation of his arrival at the Camp Nou, after even his coach, Thomas Tuchel, has already taken for granted his departure from the club. This negotiation could be a matter of hours.

The keys

Difference in television income. According to data from the Premier League itself, last year its clubs shared exactly 3,110.8 million euros. In the same period, LaLiga distributed 1,444.7 million among its clubs.

The big ones. The difference in economic potential in the championships is not felt among the big teams. Real Madrid and Barcelona charge 163 and 165 million, while City, which charges the most in England, stays at 164.

The little ones. The difference is seen in the ‘middle and lower class’ of both leagues. For example, the three relegated in Spain received as follows: Alavés (51), Levante (50) and Granada (52). In the Premier: Norwich (98.5), Watford (101.2) and Burnley (106.5).

In the opposite direction, meanwhile, there have been nine arrivals to the League from the Premier so far. But with a transcendental difference. Of them, for now, only one has brought income to the British clubs: that of raphinha. Barça will have to pay Leeds 58 million for the Brazilian, but it has also been done with the Danish Christensen, from Chelsea, at zero cost, after leaving the club with the letter of freedom under his arm. The same formula, in this case, that he used Rudiger to enroll in the ranks of Real Madrid and who has taken advantage of a Musonda who never found his place in Stamford Brige to seek better fortune with Levante in Second. the veteran kiko boxfor his part, has joined Getafe after disassociating himself from Leeds and four transfers complete the list of landings: that of Telleswho will play for Sevilla on loan from Manchester United, that of Lo Celsowho will perform at Villarreal on loan from Tottenham, and those of yangel herrera Y yan coutoloaned to Girona by the biggest shareholder of the Girona club, Manchester City.
