Real Valladolid are owned by Brazil legend Ronaldo, Almeria by Saudi Arabian billionaire Turki Al-Sheikh and Girona's majority owner is the City Football Group. Modern football, eh? Of the three, Real Valladolid have had the most low-key summer, perhaps because it's been only a year since they were last in the top flight. However, Almeria have spent over €15 million, which is a fortune in Spanish football for a team outside the top four.
m. ET, ESPN+Antonio Rudiger -- a Champions League-winning central defender at Chelsea -- fits into that category, and so does top midfield prospect Aurelien Tchouameni, who joined from AS Monaco. Otherwise, Madrid trust in the players who won it all last year -- and unflappable coach Carlo Ancelotti -- to go out and do it again. There's a belief that veterans like Karim Benzema and Luka Modric can deliver for one more year; that up-and-coming stars such as Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo have even more room for improvement; and that generational change is already underway with Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde in midfield. -- Kirklandplay2:07Julien Laurens and Don Hutchison debate whether Real Madrid's Karim Benzema or Barcelona's Robert Lewandowski will have the better season this year. BarcelonaBarcelona finished second last season and it was reluctantly accepted as a success after Xavi Hernandez took over as manager in November with the team languishing ninth in LaLiga.

Real MadridThe euphoria generated by Real Madrid's 14th Champions League win in May hasn't faded yet.
Quique Sanchez Flores has also steadied the ship after previous coach Michel's struggles. Sanchez Flores is a seen-it-all, underrated manager who knows how to build a solid, effective team, and will be hoping for a straightforward midtable finish rather than a relegation battle. -- Kirklandplay1:36Don Hutchison and Julien Laurens discuss Barcelona's problems with registering their new signings. Can busy Barcelona stop Real's repeat? First of all, let's assume all of Barcelona's signings can be registered and there is a satisfactory outcome to the Frenkie de Jong situation.
The Clasico battles (Oct. 16 in Madrid, March 23 in Barcelona) for the top of the table will be full of promise. -- MarsdenWill Madrid be fazed by Mbappe snub? "Kylian who? " That's been the message from the Bernabeu ever since Madrid missed out on their long-term top target when France star Kylian Mbappe signed a new contract at Paris Saint-Germain.
And president Joan Laporta says they are not done yet, either -- although a bloated payroll also needs reducing first. As a result, Xavi has been handed a stacked, highly competitive squad. The team looks especially exciting in attack, with Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang complementing Lewandowski and Raphinha. Finishing 13 points behind Madrid this season will not be acceptable.
And the City Football Group has used its network of clubs to make some interesting additions, none more so than Valentin "Taty" Castellanos, who joins on loan after winning Major League Soccer's Golden Boot in 2021 and leading NYCFC to the MLS Cup title. Yangel Herrera and Yan Couto have been added from Manchester City and Rodrigo Riquelme from Atletico Madrid. Keep an eye on young, versatile defender Arnau Martinez, too. -- MarsdenSo, who wins LaLiga? Who'll play in Champions League? "The hunger is the last thing I am worried about, " Carlo Ancelotti said.
There is talent in the squad in the form of Inigo Martinez, Iker Muniain and Inaki Williams, and the club's academy at Lezama continues to produce talent for the first team. -- MarsdenGetafeGetafe's transfer window -- led by new director of football Ramon Planes -- has been quietly excellent. Defender Domingos Duarte, midfielders Jaime Seoane and Luis Milla and forwards Portu and Borja Mayoral are all sensible additions who will strengthen a team that lost a record seven consecutive games at the start of last season.
Among their key signings is Brazilian defender Kaiky, who is only 18 and was scouted by Barcelona. The real sign of Almeria's wealth, though, is that they have so far resisted bids for star forward Umar Sadiq, a Nigeria international with over 40 goals in his two years at the club. Girona, meanwhile, have had a good summer on paper. David Lopez adds experience to a squad that already includes veteran striker Cristhian Stuani.
If Madrid can maintain the basis of last year, and integrate Rudiger and Tchouameni, plus last season's big signing Eduardo Camavinga, it feels like they should be the strongest side again -- although the absence of another striker might be a concern. Given the way that they finished last season and how they have signed in the summer, Barcelona really should compete all the way to the finish this time. And not being defending champions might be good for Atletico Madrid. Sevilla and Real Betis probably won't be as good as they were. Considering the stability and resources, fourth place should be there for Villarreal. Look for Real Sociedad to aim for fifth place and the Europa League berth. Looking for a revelation: how good might Athletic Club be with the return of Ernesto Valverde as coach? Or what about Getafe, who impressed once Quique Sanchez Flores took over and seem to have signed well too. -- Loweplay1:06New Barcelona signing Robert Lewandowski praises Real Madrid's Karim Benzema but says he isn't keen on being in direct competition with him.
If so, there can be no excuses for Xavi and Barcelona this season. While it's true Xavi transformed Barca last season after floundering midtable for a part of it, it's also true he was given much more leeway than his predecessor, Ronald Koeman. Xavi was backed in January with the signings of Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and has been spectacularly backed this summer. Robert Lewandowski is the standout arrival at €45 million, but big money has also been invested in exciting Brazil winger Raphinha and vibrant defender Jules Kounde. It's going to be fascinating to see how all the new signings do at Camp Nou, but also to see how Ousmane Dembele progresses after signing a new contract and how youngsters Pedri, Gavi and Ansu Fati continue to evolve. Club president Joan Laporta says success is a requirement at Barca and that is why he has sanctioned this summer's spending. Now it's up to Xavi to stop Ancelotti's Madrid, who have also strengthened with the signings of Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni, retaining the title.
