With the transfer window now closed and the La Liga season fully underway, its time to see how successful each club’s business has been after an extended summer break due to the global pandemic caused by Covid-19. It’s always a busy summer in the La Liga but today we have a look at some of our favourite transfers of the past window and who you should be looking out for as the season goes on.
First of all will be of Miralem Pjanic to join the Catalonian giants Barcelona for a reported $60million with Brazilian Arthur going in the opposite direction. Barcelona have had a testing 2020, with the embarrassment of losing 8-2 in the Champions League to Bayern Munich, and then with the whole Messi Saga wanting to leave, they’ve needed to make a statement signing and Pjanic might just be that. The 30-year old Bosnian has always been a high-class operator, with his skill on the ball being up there with the very best in the world. The only question that Barcelona fans would be is he past his best now with him being 30 and also the price tag which seems a lot for his age? Only time will tell.

During the off season, many football punters had to find alternative methods of gambling to try and produce a profit from the comfort of their own homes. There are still credit card casinos in which have seen a surge of numbers from regular football bettors and onto their casino markets – something worth checking out.
Next transfer that we like the look of is that od David Silva leaving Manchester City after 10 successful seasons at the Cityzens and joining Real Sociedad. Although Silva might be 34-years old and certainly out of his prime, he can still be an addition to this Sociedad team. Last year he registered 6 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League and will be looking to see if he can continue this in his home country.
And finally, the last player in which we will examine is the player that Pjanic is replacing, Ivan Rakitic has moved back to Sevilla after 6 successful seasons at Barcelona. However, with the rocky year that Barca has had, Rakitic found himself in the clear out at the club and didn’t make it under the new look Barcelona under Ronald Koeman. Rakitic is happy to go back to Sevilla, with him family all being from there and will be excited to get underway.
