La Liga have released the spending limits for clubs for the 2022/23 campaign following the closure of the summer transfer window.

The spending limit represents the maximum amount that each club can spend during that particular season after the summer window, including expenses on the first team in relation to players, managers, coaching staff, reserves and youth systems and so on.

Real Madrid had been handed a massive spending limit of €739 million for the 2021/22 campaign, which has slightly dipped down to €683.5 million for the current season. Despite the slight cuts, Los Blancos remain the club with the largest salary cap in La Liga.

The Spanish champions’ local rivals, Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, have seen an increase in their wage cap allotment. For the previous campaign, La Liga had set a limit of €171 million for Los Colchoneros in the summer of last year.

It has almost doubled to €341 million for the 2022/23 season as per the official data released by La Liga. It makes Atletico Madrid the team with the third-highest wage cap for the current campaign.

Sandwiched between the two Madrid clubs are Barcelona, who have received a massive financial boost this season, thanks to the triggering of their four economic levers this summer.

As a result, Barcelona have seen their salary cap rise from -€144 million in January to €656.5 million for the new season.

Elche have the lowest spending limit of all clubs in La Liga for 2022/23, with an allotment of €42.672 million.

Atletico Madrid, Chelsea contact PSG midfielder’s agent with player set to leave

Atletico Madrid and Chelsea are among the clubs that have made contact with the agent of PSG midfielder Leandro Paredes, who is set to leave this summer.

This claim comes from journalist Martin Arevalo on ESPN, who states that apart from Atletico and Chelsea, an unnamed third club have also established contact with the Argentine international’s representative.

Paredes has been on PSG’s books since January 2019, when he arrived from Zenit St. Petersburg. For a large part of his time at the French capital outfit, the midfielder had been a regular starter in the side.

However, last summer saw Paredes get shipped out on loan to Juventus. He has played 33 times for the Bianconeri this season with a return of one goal and assist apiece.

The Serie A heavyweights, who were recently hit with a 10-point deduction, have the option to purchase him permanently. But, as per the report, his relationship with manager Massimiliano Allegri is not good and a return to PSG is on the cards.

And considering that he is not in the plans back at Parc des Princes either, a permanent departure away seems set in stone for Paredes.

As such, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, and an unnamed club have shown interest in acquiring his services by making contact with the 28-year-old World Cup winner’s agent.

With Koke entering the final phase of his career and Geoffrey Kondogbia expected to leave at the end of the season, the Rojiblancos could do with reinforcements in the centre of the park.

Paredes, who has plenty of experience at the highest level and is known for his aggressive mentality, can be a good fit into Diego Simeone’s setup at the Civitas Metropolitano.

But, with Chelsea also in the picture, things could get tricky for the Colchoneros. After all, Atleti are operating on tight finances and are looking for bargain and free transfer signings in the market with the likes of Marcus Thuram, Jordi Alba, and Raphael Guerreiro emerging as targets.
