La Liga is among the top five leagues in the world and boasts of the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid going at it every year for the trophy. Some of the best players to kick a ball have played in the La Liga and given it the status it has today.
Here are the top ten squads in La Liga based on market value:
10. Getafe (€161.7 million)
Getafe kick off the list of the top ten most valuable squads in the La Liga. Defender Djene is the highest valued player at the club at €25 million. Arambarri, Cucurella and Maksimovic are the next highest valued players in the squad at €20 million each.
9. Real Betis (€213.5 million)
Real Betis have a pretty good squad at their disposal, and should really be contesting for the top spots in the League. Nabil Fekir is the highest valued player in the squad at €32 million and is followed by Brazilian right-back Emerson at €25 million.
8. Athletic Bilbao (€222.9 million)
Bilbao have endured a difficult start to the 20/21 season, but have been regular to Europe in the seasons gone by. The spot for most expensive player in the squad is shared by goalkeeper Unai Simon and forward Inaki Williams.
7. Valencia (€227.2 million)
After a pretty shocking summer that saw them part ways with some of their best players in Dani Parejo, Rodrigo and Ferran Torres, Valencia still have one of the most expensive squads in the Spanish league. The most valuable player in the squad is forward Maxi Gomez and is followed by Gaya and is followed by Carlos Soler.
6. Villareal (€266.3 million)
The Yellow Submarine has managed to lure some amazing talent to their club this summer, with the likes of Dani Parejo, Francis Coquelin, Takefusa Kubo and Parvis Estupinan joining the club. The highest valued player, though, is a tie between Kubo, Pau Torres and Gerard Moreno.
5. Real Sociedad (€309.6 million)
The club are currently competing in the Europa League and have managed to get together a steady start to the 20/21 La Liga season. They are currently at the top of the La Liga table with 17 points from 8 games. The highest valued player is Mikel Oyarzabal, who is also at the top of the scoring charts.
4. Sevilla (€348.9 million)
The reigning Europa League champions are the last team that have a squad valued at under €500 million. Their expansive tactics and flow on the pitch have made them quite well known across the continent under Lopetegui. The most valuable player for Sevilla is forward Lucas Ocampos.
3. Atletico Madrid (€753.25 million)
There is a gap of over €400 million between Atletico Madrid and the rest of the squads in the league. This just goes to show why the Rojiblancos are perennially stuck behind Barcelona and Real Madrid, whilst also being well ahead of the rest of the teams in the division. Their most valuable player is keeper Jan Oblak.
2. Real Madrid (€855 million)
Los Blancos have a squad that is currently the second most valuable in the Spanish top flight, but they are the reigning La Liga Champions following their successful title challenge last season. The highest valued player at the Bernabeu is Courtois, closely followed by Fede Valverde and Raphael Varane.
1. Barcelona (€878.2 million)
The Blaugrana boast of having the most valuable squad in the division, but have some serious financial problems to deal with. Their most valuable player, without a doubt, is Leo Messi, followed by Ansu Fati and Antoine Griezmann.
