Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has claimed that the domination in Spain between Real Madrid and Barcelona is making La Liga monotonous.
The last side to win the league other than the 'El Classico' duo was Valencia over ten years ago.
In the last two years, the winning side (Madrid and Barca respectively) have picked up 100 points and in the 2011/12 season the third placed side Valencia were a massive 30 points behind second place
This summer a whole host of talent have swapped Spain for England like Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo, Roberto Soldado and Mesut Ozil.
On the other hand, a lot of Premier League talent has gone the other way in the last few years, the two most expensive players in the world Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo provide evidence for that.
However, Cazorla who swapped Villarreal for Arsenal last year believes more players will want to leave Spain's top flight rather than join it.
The 28-year-old said: “Many players want to try their luck outside of Spain because it gets monotonous with just Barca and Real Madrid.
"Outside of Spain there are opportunities to win titles. In Spain, with the duopoly, there aren’t. In addition, there are economic problems the country is facing.
“I don’t think La Liga has taken a step back, but it’s also true that great players like Negredo, Soldado, Navas, who are very important players in the league, have all left to the English Premier League and I think in that regard La Liga has lowered its quality.”
