La Liga Clubs Combine To Gain More Than They Lose On Player Transactions

For the "second consecutive year, La Liga clubs are earning more than they are spending on player transactions," according to Carmelo Ruiz of AS. As of Monday, the 20 La Liga clubs had received €396.5M ($525M) on transactions, while spending on player signings totaled €254.5M ($337M), "leaving a positive balance" of €142M ($188M). This "tendency started last year" when the league made €72.4M after combined revenue from player signings totaled €217M, compared to just €144.6M spent on players (AS, 8/13).
