La Liga transfer news

Kylian Mbappe, the PSG star, has been on a roller coaster about joining Real Madrid. After a few days of much anticipation, he pulled down the offer. After the rejection, Real Madrid turned their interest to Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry.

La Liga transfer rumours

Bayern Munich is in talks with FC Barcelona to acquire Frankie De Jong to improve their attacking force with Lewandowski on the side. After three seasons of a great defensive partnership of Diego Carlos and Jules Kounde for Sevilla, Chelsea was drawn to Kounde. This will significantly affect Sevilla’s defence since Diego’s transfer to Aston Villa has been confirmed with a 30-million Euros deal.

Who is the number one player in La Liga?

Real Madrid’s Kareem Benzema has proven to be the best in the league and has earned the title ‘King of La Liga’. The Frenchman has had a great season leading the league to score 27 goals and the second in assists with 12. He also emerged as the Champions League's top scorer.
