La Liga has set the new salary limits for each of the clubs in the Spanish top flight for the 2023-24 season, revealing a huge gap between Real Madrid and the rest of the competition. The salary limits are based on the income and expenses of each club, allowing them to spend 70% of their turnover on players, staff, and other associates’ salaries. The aim is to ensure the financial sustainability and competitiveness of the league.
Real Madrid have the highest salary limit in La Liga by a wide margin, with €727m. This is an increase of €44m from the previous season, when they had €683m. The increase is due to their prudent financial management and their lower spending in the past seasons.
