The Primera Division has been underway for some time and we have seen quite some action in recent weeks, with Real Madrid beating Barcelona in the first El Clasico of the season. But the league is not just about these two sides and we have had numerous great arrivals and several departures from the league in the last couple of months.

Surely you too are to find out more about the

La Liga 2022-23 summer transfer window

as it could help you decide about your favorites for the current season. So read on as we provide all the details you might need to know about the arrivals and the departures of the Spanish top-flight 2022 summer transfer window and get to see how the signings have fared so far in the league.

La Liga summer transfers of 2022

From Atletico Madrid’s bizarre deal with Antoine Griezmann to Real Madrid’s outstanding plan-B signings, there are certainly some interesting cases on the list of arrivals and departures in the La Liga 2022-23 summer transfer window. So without further ado here is everything there is to know about the summer that passed.

Real Madrid

Arrivals:

Aurelien Tchouameni, Antonio Rudiger

Departures:

Casemiro, Borja Mayoral, Takefusa Kubo, Miguel Gutierrez, Victor Chust, Gareth Bale, Luka Jovic, Isco, Marcelo, Reinier, Antonio

Los Blancos were the Champions League winners in the 2021-22 season and they were expected to finally sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain. However, everything changed for the Spanish giants when the French superstar decided to stay at PSG by signing a lucrative deal with the French side. That is why Real Madrid opted to sign Aurelien Tchouameni and Antonio Rudiger instead, spending €80 million on another French youngster. Tchouameni has been simply incredible for Carlo Ancelotti since his arrival in the

La Liga 2022-23 summer transfer window

as he has been able to more than fill in Casemiro’s shoes.

Casemiro left Madrid to join Manchester United in order to look for a new challenge after winning five Champions League titles with the Spanish side. According to the La Liga 2022 summer transfer news, other great

Real Madrid

players also left the club, including Isco, Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Luka Jovic. We will have to wait and see if Ancelotti and his men can retain their title as the champions of Europe in the current season, while also lifting other titles as well with their new arrivals or not.

FC Barcelona

Arrivals:

Raphinha, Jules Kounde, Robert Lewandowski, Marcos Alonso, Hector Bellerin, Andreas Christensen, Franck Kessie

Departures:

Philippe Coutinho, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Francisco Trincao, Oscar Mingueza, Miralem Pjanic, Martin Braithwaite, Neto, Riqui Puig, Dani Alves, Moussa Wague, Rey Manaj, Nico Gonzalez, Sergino Dest, Ez Abde, Clement Lenglet, Luuk de Jong, Adama Traore

It was quite surprising for everyone to see how many players Barcelona actually signed in the

La Liga 2022-23 summer transfer window

. Nobody knew how the Blaugrana managed to finance their signings and it is still a question that needs to be answered. However, for the time being, we see numerous new players don the iconic Barcelona jersey, including the likes of Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski and Jules Kounde.

While these three arrivals cost Barca a total amount of €153 million, they went on to sign several others on free transfer deals as well. Xavi also let go of Philippe Coutinho, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a dozen other footballers in the Spanish top-flight 2022 summer transfer window as he no longer had any use for any of them. We shall see if

Barcelona

could ever rise to the top once again as they are currently struggling to find their way into the next round of the Champions League.

Sevilla

Arrivals:

Tanguy Nianzou, Marcao, Adnan Januzaj, Isco, Kasper Dolberg, Alex Telles

Departures:

Jules Kounde, Diego Carlos, Lucas Ocampos, Luuk de Jong, Aljenadro Pozo, Ludwig Augustinsson, Javi Diaz, Juan Berrocal, Munir El Haddadi, Ivan Romero, Rony Lopes, Oussama Idrissi, Oscar Rodriguez, Anthony Martial

Sevilla

are always a pain in the top-three’s neck and they were certainly planning on being an even more of a pain in their neck with their recent signings in the La Liga 2022-23 summer transfer window. However, things have not been going according to plan so far as they are currently roaming the bottom-half of the table with 9 points in 9 games.

With such poor results in both La Liga and the Champions League, the Spanish side had no choice but to dismiss Julen Lopetegui and replace him with Jorge Sampaoli. Sevilla does have the manpower to push for the top-half of the league table and the club’s supporters are surely hopeful that their side can find their rightful place in the fourth or third spot once again.

Atletico Madrid

Arrivals:

Nahuel Molina, Samuel Lino, Axel Witsel, Sergio Reguilon, Antoine Griezmann

Departures:

Renan Lodi, Daniel Wass, Manu Sanchez, Sime Vrsaljko, Hector Herrera, Nehuen Perez, Sergio Camello, Samuel Lino, Vitolo, Luis Suarez

Having let go of Luis Suarez,

Atletico Madrid

have been quite reliant on Antoine Griezmann, which is exactly why they decided to resign the Frenchman from Barcelona for a much reduced transfer fee. Even though Griezmann is not technically one of the arrivals in the La Liga 2022-23 summer transfer window, we count him on the same list as his signing was quite recent. Simeone’s men are currently sitting third behind Barcelona and Real Madrid, yet they have already dropped points in the race for the Primera Division title.

Real Sociedad

Arrivals:

Umar Sadiq, Brais Mendez, Momo Cho, Takefusa Kubo, Alexander Sorloth

Departures:

Alexander Isak, Willian Jose, Mathew Ryan, Joseba Zaldua, Adnan Januzaj, Jon Bautista, Jon Guridi, Kevin Rodrigues

Real Sociedad are currently battling for a place in next season’s Champions League and that is why they used the

Spanish top-flight 2022 summer transfer window

to bring in several talented players to replace the departing ones.

Real Betis

Arrivals:

Willian Jose, Luiz Henrique, Luis Felipe

Departures:

Marc Bartra, Joel Robles, Raul Garcia, Diego Lainez, Hector Bellerin

Real Betis

have been slowly gaining momentum as the dark horses of La Liga. They are currently in a Champions League spot and are only a couple of points behind Barcelona. With Willian Jose, Luiz Henrique and Luis Felipe being on Real Betis’ arrivals list in the La Liga 2022-23 summer transfer window, Manuel Pellegrini is certainly aiming for a great future with Betis if his men can keep their consistency.

Villarreal

Arrivals:

Johan Mojica, Kiko Femenia, Pepe Reina, Jose Luis Morales

Departures:

Pervis Estupinan, Moi Gomez, Boulaye Dia, Sergio Senjo, Xavi Quintilla, Mario Gaspar, Rubem Pena, Paco Alcacer, Alex Millan, Vicente Iborra, Serge Aurier

Villarreal have had quite a busy time in La Liga 2022-23 summer transfer window as they signed the likes of Johan Mojica, Pepe reina and Kiko Femenia. They are sitting in the top-half of the league table for the time being, yet they have not been able to deliver on their promises in recent weeks.

Athletic Bilbao

Arrivals:

Gorka Guruzeta, Ander Herrera

Departures:

Unai Lopez, Jokin Ezkieta, Inigo Cordoba, Alex Petxa, Nico Serrano, Peru Nolaskoain, Juan Artola, Imano Garcia de Albeniz, Benat Prados, Unai Nunez

According to the latest

La Liga 2022 summer transfer news

,

Athletic Bilbao

have signed Gorka Guruzeta and Ander Herre, letting go of several players including Unai Lopez, Unai Nunez and Inigo Cordoba in the process. Bilbao are currently sitting sixth on the league table and are battling for a position in next season’s Europa League.

Valencia

Arrivals:

Andre Almeida, Hugo Duro, Cenk Ozkacar, Edinson Cavani, Samu Castillejo, Justin Kluivert, Nico Gonzalez, Samuel Lino

Departures:

Goncalo Guedes, Carlos Soler, Maxi Gomez, Jasper Cillessen, Manu Vallejo, Denis Cheryshev, Koba Koindredi, Bryan Gil, Helder Costa, Omar Alderete

Hugo Duro, Cenk Ozkacar, Edinson Cavani, Samu Castillejo and Justin Kluivert were all on the list of La Liga summer transfers of 2022 and they all joined Valencia. The Bats are certainly enjoying Cavani’s presence as he has already made his mark at his new club. They are currently seventh on the league table and we shall wait and see if they can improve upon their work in the coming months.

CA Osasuna

Arrivals:

Moi Gomez, Many Sanchez, Ruben Pena, Aitor Fernandez, Ez Abde

Departures:

Oier Sanjurjo, Marc Cardona, Jonas Ramalho, Cote, Rober Ibanez, Jesus Areso, Javi Martinez

With 13 points in 8 league games,

Osasuna

have had a rather normal season so far and everything they did in the La Liga 2022-23 summer transfer window had little to no impact on their overall performance.

Elche CF

Arrivals:

Nicolas Fernandez Mercau, Roger Marti, Lautaro Blanco, Federico Fernandez, Carlos Clerc, Domingos Quina, Alex Collado, Pol Lirola

Departures:

Johan Mojica, Manu Justo, Pablo Piatti, Guido Carrillo, Josema, Lautaro Blanco, Kiko Casilla, Kike Perez, Lucas Olaza

According to the latest La Liga 2022 summer transfer news, Elche have signed several players including Nicolas Fernandez Mercau, Lautaro Blanco, Federico Fernandez, Domingos Quina, Pol Lirola and others, while letting go of more than five players in the process. Perhaps they might have been better off with their former players as they are currently at the very bottom of the table with only 3 points from their first 9 league games. They are yet to win a league game and the future does not seem bright for the Spanish side.

Celta de Vigo

Arrivals:

Jorgen Strand Larsen, Williot Swedberg, Luca de la Torre, Agustin Marchesin, Julen Lobete, Carles Perez

Departures:

Brais Mendez, Nestor Araujo, Okay Yokuslu, Emre Mor, Sergio Carreira, Julen Lobete, Ruben Blanco, Nolito, Santi Mina, Alfon Gonzalez, Jeison Murillo

Celta Vigo’s squad list saw a couple of changes in the transfer window as they let go of more than five players to welcome the likes of Jorgen Strand, Luca de la Torre, Agustin Marchesin, Julen Lobete and Carles Perez.

Espanyol

Arrivals:

Edu Exposito, Alvaro Fernandez, Martin Braithwaite, Jose Carlos Lazo, Brian Olivan, Joselu

Departures:

Raul de Tomas, Matias Vargas, Lei Wu, Adrian Embarba, Fran Merida, Oier Olazabal, David Lopez, Diego Lopez

With 9 points in 9 league games, Espanyol are yet to make a considerable impact in La Liga this season and that is why they are currently in the bottom half of the league. Of course there is still hope for the Spanish side as their strikers have been on fire when compared with other clubs in the bottom-half of the league table.

Rayo Vallecano

Arrivals:

Raul de Tomas, Pep Chavarria, Abdul Mumin, Unai Lopez, Diego Lopez, Salvi Sanchez, Sergio Camello

Departures:

Luca Zidane, Jorge Moreno, Sergio Moreno, Joni Montiel, Martin Pascual, Ivan Arboleda, Sergi Guardiola, Nikola Maras, Unai Lopez

Rayo Vallecano finished 12th in the league last season and it seems that not much has changed since then as they are still roaming the same area with 11 points in 9 games. Even though they have signed the likes of Raul de Tomas, they are yet to see their signings bear fruit.

Getafe

Arrivals:

Borja Mayoral, Luis Milla, Domingos Duarte, Kiko Casilla, Fabrizio Angileri, Jaime Seoane, Munir El Haddadi, Jordan Amavi, Juanmi Latasa, Portu

Departures:

Martin Olivera, Hugo Duro, Miguel Rubio, Ignasi Miquel, Jakub Jankto, Vitolo, Jorge Cuenca, Sandro Ramiez, Okay Yokuslu

Getafe have not been on top form these past few seasons and it seems that even their numerous new signings are not going to help them return to their prime days any time soon. They have failed to hit double figures in 9 league games and it is unlikely that we would see them anywhere near the top-half of the league table.

RCD Mallorca

Arrivals:

Pablo Maffeo, Predrag Rajkovic, Tino Kadewere, Jose Copete, Matija Nastasic

Departures:

Matthew Hoppe, Joan Sastre, Aleix Febas, Alksandar Sedlar, Brian Olivan, Salva Sevilla, Manolo Reina, Takefusa Kubo, Fer Nino, Sergio Rico

RCD Mallorca are right behind Celta Vigo on the league table and it seems that they might get to repeat the results of last season, roaming the same area for the rest of the season as well.

Cadiz CF

Arrivals:

Theo Bongonda, Brian Ocampo, Ruben Alcaraz, Victor Chust, Fede San Emeterio, Joseb Zaldua, Awer Mabil

Departures:

Varazdat Haroyan, Jorge Pombo, Alberto Perea, Salvi Sanchez, Jens Jonsson, Ivan Chapela, Ousman Idrissi, Ruben Alcaraz, Florin And one

Cadiz are currently battling to stay in La Liga next season, yet avoiding relegation seems to be quite a difficult job after a summer overhaul in the transfer window.

UD Almeria

Arrivals:

El Bilal Toure, Lazaro, Kaiky, Marko Milovanovic, Alejandro Pozo, Gui Guedes, Gonzalo Melero, Leop Baptistao, Srdjan Babic, Adrian Embarba, Fernando Pacheco

Departures:

Umar Sadiq, Jual Villar, Curro Sanchez, Jose Carlos Lazo, Altor Bunuel, Arvin Appiah, Javi Robles, Daniel Carrico, Dragan Rosic, Jonathan Silva

Right above Cadiz sit Almeria who are suffering from the same fate for the time being. They have accumulated 7 points from their last 9 league games. Of course these were not the results they were hoping for after spending almost €40 million in the summer transfer window. We will have to wait and see if their new signings could help the club gain momentum in the coming weeks.

Real Valladolid

Arrivals:

Gonzalo Plata, Monchu, Mickael Malsa, Kenedy, Ivan Sanchez, Sergio Senjo, Sergio Escudero, Zouhair Feddal

Departures:

Ruben Alcaraz, Saidy Janko, Victor Garcia, Sergio Benito , Waldo Rubio, Diego Alende, Kiko Olivas, Stiven Plaza, Toni Villa, Paulo Vitor, Josema

Real Valladolid did not get to spend much in the summer, yet they were one of the busier clubs in the transfer market, signing more than eight players and letting go of even more in the process. They currently sit below Getafe with 8 points in 9 league games as they struggle to hit double figures in their number of goals.

Girona

Arrivals:

Miguel Gutierrez, Javi Hernandez, David Lopez, Toni Villa, Manu Vallejo, Reinier, Oriol Romeu, Paulo Gazzaniga, Yan Couto, Rodrigo Riquelme, Yangel Herrera

Departures:

Adrian Ortola, Alex Gallar, Jordi Calavera, Jairo Izquierdo, Alex Sala, David Junca, Pol Lozano, Alex Baena, Dario Sarmiento

Girona spent around €5 million in the summer transfer window, signing the likes of Miguel Gutierrez, Javi Hernandez, David Lopez, Toni Villa and Oriol Romeu. Even though they are above the relegation zone, they are not in a safe place for the time being, which means that they should keep an eye out for poor performance in the coming future.
