Real Betis is a Spanish professional soccer team, and they play in the La Liga since their win of the Segunda División in 2014/2025. The team has had many relegations over the years, but they managed to snatch up a few titles, like a single La Liga title in 1934/1935 and two Copa del Rey titles. In Segunda División, they have seven titles and five-second places. The team's current coach and manager are Manuel Pellegrini, a famous former player, and manager. This article will review the top transfers to and from Real Betis in their history as a club.
Notable Transfers for Real Betis
The Real Betis team might not have the most well-known players, and they might not have made the most expensive transfers, but there are a few key players who benefited the team with their gameplay. There are probably some transfers that we missed, but, in our opinion, these are the most notable ones in the history of the team.
Giovani Lo Celso is an Argentinian central midfielder who joined Real Betis on a £3 million loan from PSG. There was an option to buy in the loan contract, and in 2019 after one year of playing for the team, Giovani Lo Celso permanently joined Real Betis. Out of his 46 appearances, he scored sixteen goals for Real Betis. Like before, he was loaned out to Tottenham Hotspur, and at the end of January 2020, he signed a five-year contract with them for a fee of £32 million, thus leaving Real Betis.
Fabian Ruiz is another central midfielder, but this one rose through the ranks of Real Betis, and although he was loaned out to Elche in 2017, upon returning, he became a Betis regular under their manager at that time. Then he renewed his contract in 2018 until 2023 with a buyout clause of £30 million. In the middle of 2018, Ruiz joined Napoli, who reportedly paid his buyout clause. He has quickly become one of the more popular football names, and his career is yet to flourish.
Joaquín is another footballer who came up in Real Betis. He changed teams in 2006 when Valencia bought him for £25 million. In 2015 he returned home for the small price of £1.50 million. In December 2019, Joaquín made his first eighteen-minute hat-trick and was named the oldest player in the La Liga to achieve this. He also owns a 2% share of his first club. His extension in Real Betis will run until 2021, and after that, we will see where his path will take him.
Borja Iglesias – a Spanish striker, arrived in Real Betis from Espanyol in 2019 when he agreed to a £28 million deal. There were no juicy gossips surrounding his transfer. He signed the contract for five years and judging by his current performance, he is doing okay. He doesn't have a history with the team like other footballers mentioned in the article, but he did get reunited with Rubi, his former Espanyol manager. He appeared in thirty-five games and scored three goals.
