La Liga clubs are actively pursuing new faces for their squad and while Real Madrid have acted swiftly, they’re not the only ones.

La Liga could be experiencing something of a ressurgence at present. Real Madrid have snapped up the likes of Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic and Ferland Mendy and could move for the likes of Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek.

However, Los Blancos are not the only ones looking to sign players. The likes of Valencia, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Seville are doing the same.

Griezmann to Barcelona expected to happen in July

According to Foot Mercato, Barcelona are going to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid this summer. The reason behind the protacted transfer is the player’s transfer value. At present, the World Cup winner will cost the club €200 million. However, the release clause will drop to €120 million in July. Once that happens, the La Liga champions will sign Griezmann.

The forward is expected to earn €17 million per year and will sign a five year deal at Camp Nou. Moreover, the possible arrival of Neymar has no bearing on Griezmann’s future.

Villarreal snap up free agent

Moreno siged for Jurgen Klopp’s side for €18 million in 2014. However, he was never able to nail a regular first team spot. Inconsistent displays and the rise of Andrew Robertson confined the former Seville man to the bench. However, Moreno would be looking to start a new chapter now that he has returned to his native Spain.
