la ligaTHE EU concluded Monday that seven La Liga teams, including Real Madrid and Barcelona, received illegal aid from the Spanish government.

Following a two-and-a-half year investigation, the supranational body pressed the clubs to return over €60m in deferred taxes, collectively. They claim that preferential state treatment gave the clubs an unfair competitive advantage.

The full list of clubs comprises: Atletico Bilbao, Atletico Osasuna, Barcelona, Elche, Hercules, Real Madrid and Valencia.
