LALIGA’s top clubs are reportedly confident that they can now compete with the best in the Premier League in the battle to sign players like Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe.
The Spanish top group announced yesterday that they had reached an agreement with the international investment fund CVC.

That should lead to a believed cash injection of around £ 2 billion into the league for a ten percent stake.
The LaLiga sites get 90 percent of that injection and receive a low interest rate on a 40 year repayment plan.
And around 15 percent of this cash boost goes straight to the club’s squad, says AS.
That means Lionel Messi’s contract renewal at Barcelona has become “much more real”, as have the potential signings of sought-after Haaland and Mbappe.
Messi, 34, became a free agent in late June but has been talking to the Catalan giants about a new deal all summer and is expected to sign before the weekend.
Barcelona hoped to shift 40 percent of Gerard Pique, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto’s wages to pave the way for Messi.
A mass exodus could also take place in the Nou Camp while a major reconstruction is underway.
Samuel Umtiti, Miralem Pjanic, and Martin Braithwaite all appear to be on their way to the door as they desperately try to cut their wages while still trying to tie their talisman on.
However, this injection of capital will help them enormously financially.
Barca’s bitter rivals Real Madrid also had to exonerate themselves on their payroll, although their situation was not as precarious.

They couldn’t make any major signings over the summer, and they couldn’t get Gareth Bale and his hefty salary off the books.
Paris Saint-Germain striker Mbappe remains his number one target, however, while Dortmund’s Haaland is another boss Florentino Perez is looking to bring to the Bernabeu.
And that cash boost means that they can now compete again with the wealth of the English prem clubs in the transfer market.
