Next Season's Clasicos Could Be Absolutely Incredible

Next Season's Clasicos Could Be Absolutely Incredible

League seasons all over Europe are just around the corner and with pre season well underway we can start getting excited about next seasons, and that means looking forward to a Clasico battle in Spain.

The best rivalry in recent years in football has been between Real Madrid and Barcelona, with Jose Mourinho's rivalry with Pep Guardiola defining the era.

Things have got a bit calmer in recent years, with Real generally dominating and Barcelona taking the spoils in Spain but things could change next season.

La Liga might be returning to a title race and the two Clasicos could be some of the best because the teams have heavily invested this summer.

Ernesto Valverde has added Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann to his team, making them even more of a threat going forward, whilst rumours of a return for Neymar won't go away.

Should the Catalan giants find a way to bring the Brazilian back from PSG just two years after he left the Nou Camp then it might but them ahead of their rivals.

However Los Blancos' recruitment this summer has been even better than Barca's, and was more necessary, with Zinedine Zidane back in charge and with a full summer with the team.

After finishing third last season, and getting rid of two managers before the return of Zizou, there's a new group of Galacticos for Real.

Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic being signed makes them even more of an attacking threat than previously whilst Eder Militao is a huge addition in defence.

There's still rumours that Zidane could add Paul Pogba to his team this summer, although that currently seems unlikely, but boy would that heat things up even more.

The first Clasico of the season will be on 27th October at the Camp Nou and it could be an absolute humdinger.

What adds to the intrigue of the Spanish season is Atletico Madrid. Diego Simeone's side, who finished second last season, have had a huge turnover of players this summer.

Griezmann and Lucas Hernandez have left but they've recruited well and Joao Felix could be a massive signing for them if he clicks with the team.

Rumours that Simeone could play Alvaro Morata and Diego Costa up front together in a 4-4-2 diamond is extremely intriguing.

Who will win La Liga next season?
