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.

Coming off a highly controversial game against Almeria, Real Madrid will now travel to Gran Canaria to take on Las Palmas tomorrow as part of the early kick-off.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the clash tomorrow, starting off by confirming his goalkeeper for tomorrow, “Lunin will start tomorrow.”

He also added that Madrid were looking to get back to their usual level after back-to-back poor performances, one of which included elimination against Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey round of 16.

“We are motivated to return to our best level after 2 bad games.”

The Italian gaffer also commented on the biggest football story in the world today, which was Jurgen Klopp announcing his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

“It’s quite surprising, I understand. Working for a long time with the same club and players lowers your motivation a bit. He’s doing a fantastic job at Liverpool.”

And of course, Ancelotti also spoke about the leaked VAR audiovisual, some of which are highly controversial for all parties involved. Barcelona coach and players have also commented on the same, in light of the Negreira case.

“They have talked a lot. Everyone knows what has happened in the last 20 years in Spanish football. The Civil Guard is carrying out an investigations. That is the real problem of Spanish football.”

Luckily for the manager and fans, all injured players — minus the ACL trio of David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois — are available. Jude Bellingham is suspended, however.

“Everyone is available now after the recent period of injuries.”

“Making up for Bellingham’s absence tomorrow? Brahim and Joselu are available options. They were able to show themselves after I relied on them as substitutes,” he added.

And as far as Militao and Courtois are concerned, both of whom tore their ACL early in the season, Ancelotti suggested that they could make their return before the season ends.

“Courtois and Militão both have the option to play this season. The recovery process is going very well, they are training on an individual level. It is February and these types of injuries last 6-8 months, so I think they will recover before the end of the season.”
