Top 5 candidates to win La Liga season 2021-22

One of the most exciting leagues in the world is La Liga, which is about to start this August. Some of the best players in the world also participated in the tournament. Atletico Madrid are the defending champions after beating Barcelona and Real Madrid to win the title last season. On that note, here are the Top 5 La Liga title contenders for the 2021-22 season.

1/ Atlético Madrid

Atletico Madrid won La Liga last season and it looks like they will attempt to successfully defend the title in the 2021-22 season. With an attack led by experienced Luis Suarez, Atletico Madrid fully deserved the La Liga title last season. The squad has been transferred from the experience of Juanfran, Diego Godin and Filipe Luis to the likes of Jose Gimenez, Kieran Trippier and the incredibly good Stefan Savic.

Atletico Madrid have signed Argentine midfielder Rodrigo De Paul from Udinese this summer. The 27-year-old midfielder is one of Argentina's best players in the 2021 Copa America winning campaign and will add immediate quality to Atletico Madrid's midfield. De Paul's arrival could herald Saul's departure, as the Spaniard has been linked with Barcelona.

2/ Barcelona

In La Liga, it can be said that Barcelona are having the best transfer window of any club ever. After finishing in a disappointing third place last season, Barcelona have secured the signatures of Memphis Depay, Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia, all on free transfers. Brazilian full-back Emerson Royal returns to the club after a successful loan spell with Real Betis.

Meanwhile, the acquisition of young Austrian attacker Yusuf Demir could prove to be a long-term option. However, the defense remains an issue for the Catalan Giants. Gerard Pique isn't as brilliant as he was in his prime, while Clement Lenglet struggled immensely last season. Samuel Umtiti is tipped to leave on a free transfer and there could be huge pressure on young stars like Garcia, Emerson and Sergino Dest to perform in La Liga 2021-22.

3/ Real Madrid

Real Madrid finished second in La Liga last season. However, they have let coach Zinedine Zidane and longtime central defenders like Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane leave this summer. The Bernabeu team has recruited Carlo Ancelotti from Everton to lead the team, but the Italian strategist will have a difficult job in hand. Ramos and Varane played key roles in Los Blancos' incredible success under Zidane, so replacing them will not be an easy job.

So far, Real Madrid seem satisfied with the squad they have. The Spanish Royal team have signed David Alaba on a free transfer, and he will likely be the man to replace Ramos. Meanwhile, Nacho and Eder Militao are their other midfield options. Los Blancos have a goalkeeper as good as Thibaut Courtois, but their aging midfield with Luka Modric and Toni Kroos is a concern, while Real Madrid's attack spearheads 34-year-old Karim Benzema. .

4/ Seville

Sevilla finished fourth in La Liga last season as manager Julen Lopetegui continues to do a great job at the club. They were heavily involved in the summer transfer window. After selling talented striker Bryan Gil to Tottenham Hotspur, Sevilla added Argentine winger Erik Lamela to their squad. The 29-year-old was part of the deal that brought Gil to Spurs.

They could lose star centre-back Jules Kounde with Chelsea expected to land the youngster. Many reports suggest that French midfielder Kurt Zouma could join Sevilla as part of the Kounde deal. Sports director – Monchi is a seasoned person in transfer activities, so Sevilla is expected to be in the Top 4 candidates to win La Liga next season.

5/ Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad has had an impressive season in recent times, ranked 5th in the rankings and won the Copa del Rey 2020.Sociedad relies on the talent of young striker - Alexander Isak when the Swedish player is in style. excellence last season. Isak is highly rated and has been contacted by many of Europe's top clubs with a big payout to leave Sociedad this summer, but he has extended his contract with the Basque club.

In addition to Isak, coach Imanol Alguacil can count on the experience and quality of two former Spain players, David Silva and Nacho Monreal. Midfielder Mikel Merino is also a key player, while Sociedad have added Australian goalkeeper Mathew Ryan and Spain left-back Diego Rico to their ranks this summer.
