To complete the roundup of the 2014/2015 LaLiga season in Spain, let’s take a look to those who impressed during their debut campaigns at new clubs. The only criterion for selection is as the title suggests: players bought, on permanent deals, during the summer transfer window.
In the net, Sergio Asenjo had a fantastic campaign personally, joining the club he had been on loan to in 2013-14, Villarreal. He has been given the highest order of aerial balls, one on ones, distribution from his hands during the campaign. Villareal had him to thank many times over during the course of the season, as he showed great consistency in his all-round game.
Aleix Vidal is the name for the right-back post. Operating both on the wing and from full-back, Vidal offers great pace and drive. He has been so impressive in troubling defenders with his direct running in the final third and his ability to attack the penalty area both with and without the ball
The assured and aggressive center back, Daniel Carrico sits alongside Vidal in the back line as best XI summer signings. The Portuguese defender has proved to be a great option for Sevilla when defending deep with his reading of the game, willingness to make big tackles and decent turn of pace.
The other center-back is Jeremy Mathieu who was arguably become Barcelona’s strongest and most consistent defender. He brings a real physicality to the team as well as acceleration, and an aerial dominance that had been missing at times in the squad. Meanwhile, his form fluctuated throughout the campaign, and he was in and out of the side for a spell.
Jesus Gamez completes the best defense line as he played his part for Atletico Madrid with strong defensive performances. He strike over 1,000 minutes of game time for his club in the league this term, and was a much more regular performer over the title run-in.
The World Cup winner Toni Kroos placed at the base of the midfield by putting great quality performances on a regular basis. Kroos shows a pack of consistency for the ball possession and defense during his good first season in Real Madrid.
GrzegorzKrychowiak, cost Sevilla less than €5 million from Ligue 1 club Reims in the summer and sits in the best central midfielder of the summer signing. The Polish is a real all-rounder, capable of winning to distributing the ball, and having an impact in penalty box. He is undoubtedly another Sevilla player who eventually earns the Andalusian club a healthy profit.
Ivan Rakitic left Sevilla for Barcelona in the summer and has been a total success.Rakitic has been a perfect addition for Barcelona this term and ended it with a league winner’s medal.Rakitic was superb in supplying the front line with possession and joining them to help break the opponents’ defense lines.
Real Madrid’s James Rodriguezhave mixed effectively creative performances with some vital goals, showcasing his mentality as well as his ability this term. Good for him and the team that he successfully regained fitness much sooner following his absence due to injuries.
Luis Suarez has been linked with Signing of the Season as La Liga fans adore his first campaign in Barcelona. His industry, skill on the ball and rapidly improving understanding of playing with Neymar and Lionel Messias the club’s successful trident, saw the goals begin to flow until the end of the term.
Antoine Griezmann has proven himself as an astounding left wing at Real Sociedad and center-forward at Atletico Madrid. The Frenchman has transformed himself into a sharp and dangerous in his post and still retains his pace, dribbling and wide play. Only Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo scored more in La Liga than Griezmann’s 22.
