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 saw a lot of movement during the January transfer window as they saw several players leave, while also bringing in a couple of new faces in.

But one player who they tried to sign and could not is Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram.

Indeed, according to AS, was on the top of director Andrea Berta’s list for the winter window as he is in the final six months of his contract. But, Gladbach asked for a fee of around €10-12 million to offload him, which prompted Atletico Madrid to move for Depay instead.

But the report states that Thuram continues to be on the agenda at the Civitas Metropolitano and Berta will try to sign him again in the summer transfer window.

However, there will be intense competition for the 25-year-old’s services given that he will be available for a free transfer at the end of the season.

Juventus and Inter Milan have shown an interest in Thuram, but there are a lot of clubs in England wishing to sign him up.

Indeed, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are all said to be gunning for the French forward’s signing while more clubs could join the list of his suitors as days progress.

So, it will be important for Atletico Madrid to achieve a top-four finish in La Liga and qualify for the UEFA Champions League for next season if they wish to attract a player of Thuram’s capability and calibre.

The 25-year-old has netted 13 goals and set up four more in 19 matches across all competitions. His ability to play anywhere across the frontline makes him an attractive prospect for interested parties such as Atletico.

But given the intense competition, Diego Simeone & co. will need to act swiftly if they wish to sign Thuram.
