Mallorca escaped relegation on the final matchday last season, and now with a complete transfer window under Javier Aguirre, will hope to progress up the table in 2022-23.
This summer, much of Mallorca’s business has been signing key players who were on loan last year. Kosovan striker Vedat Muriqi was the club’s top-scorer in just half-a-season, and his move from Lazio has been made permanent for a club-record fee of nearly €8m.
Right-back Pablo Maffeo was also a revelation and has been signed from Stuttgart, while Argentine midfielder Rodrigo Battaglia has also joined the club permanently on a free transfer.
The departure of legend Manolo Reina and the end of Sergio Rico’s loan from PSG has opened the door for a goalkeeper move. Serbian Predrag Rajkovic should be a good addition in between the sticks.
Ins: Vedat Muriqi (Lazio), Pablo Maffeo (Stuttgart), Rodrigo Battaglia (Sporting CP), Predrag Rajkovic (Reims), José Copete (Ponferradina)
Outs: Brian Oliván, Aleix Febas, Manolo Reina, Sergio Rico, Takefusa Kubo, Fer Niño, Joan Sastre, Aleksandar Sedlar
Players returning from loan: Jordi Mboula, Lago Júnior, Álex Alegria, Braian Cufré
Possible starting XI for 2022-23 season:
Rajkovic – Maffeo, Raíllo, Valjent, Copete, Jaume Costa – Baba, Grenier, Dani Rodríguez – Ángel, Muriqi
