In a continued bid to close the gap between the richest clubs and the more modest clubs, the limit for clubs in each of Spain's top two leagues has been revealed, although it's Real Madrid's budget which once again is the biggest. 

According to the data reporduced by 'Palco22', through various sources, Madrid can spend 419 million euros on the components of their first team squad. It's a drop of 2.8 per cent in relation to last season, although this year's figures reportedly do not include all the club's sections, but just the first team. 

Barcelona (390 million euros) and follow Atletico Madrid (182 million euros) follow Los Blancos, although the Catalan club have seen a reduction from last season's 421 million euros.  

As reported Palco23, "Barcelona has dropped 7.9 per cent compared to the information available from 2015-2016. There are several reasons to explain this situation, but two stand out. Madrid generate more money via ordinary business (excluding transfers) than their rival, who must also spend much more money to support the deficit generated by sections like basketball and handball."
