El Elche and five more

The market is very stagnant. The celebration of Eurocup and America’s CupAlong with the economic problems that many clubs are going through, it forces them to tighten their belts and try to get the most out of the new incorporations at affordable prices.

The covid pandemic, which has prevented the public from going to the stadiums, has reduced income and, now, teams have to make bobbin lace to comply with LaLiga’s financial “fair play.” The expenses of other seasons have been left behind. There are even groups that must adjust their templates to comply with the salary limit granted by the Clubs Employers’ Association.

Elche is in a good financial situation and has the money to sign. But the biggest shareholder, Christian Bragarnik, He is taking it easy while waiting to find better prices and interesting players who can give a quality leap to the squad.

The Granada The preseason has also started and the only news is on his bench, with the incorporation of Robert Moreno. The same happens with Valencia and Bordalás. The Royal Society He also takes it calmly, but starts with the advantage of having a squad made that won the Copa del Rey and that only lacks some details. Marcelino’s Athletic Club de Bilbao has more difficulties signing because it has a very limited market of only Basque players. The people of Bilbao have only incorporated Petxarromán a young right-back who comes from the Real Sociedad subsidiary and it is not clear that he will remain in the first team.

For his part, Vallecano Ray He has been the last to go up to First, he is more late, like Elche last year, and, for now, the renewal of his coach Andoni Iraola has only recently been completed.

The teams that have moved the most have been Barcelona, ​​Osasuna and Mallorca, with four signings each. The Catalans have incorporated, at zero cost, Kun Agüero and Eric García from Manchester City, Emerson Royal from Betis and Menmphis Depay from Olympique de Lyon.

The Mallorca He has signed Ndiaye and Ángel del Getafe, Jaume Costa, who was in the orbit of Elche, after finalizing his contract with Villarreal; and Slovak goalkeeper Dominik Griff.

Other rival theorists for permanence also have work ahead. The Levant has incorporated Soldado, Franquesa and the young Roger Brugué; and Cádiz to the central Haroyan and the Chilean Tomás Alarcón.

The market still has to do many turns and there is time until August 16 for the French-green entity to complete a competitive template.
