The last thirteen signings of Deportivo have meant zero-cost transfer to the club; a sign of the new economic reality surrounding the Galician club, and it seems that the same situation will be repeated in the coming years.

The last time that Depor pay a transfer of a player occurred at the end of the summer in 2008, it was when president Lendoiro paid 2.5 million Euros for Argentine central defender Diego Colotto, who arrived to the club in order to replace his compatriot Fabricio Coloccini.

Since then, the club has completed thirteen new signings, and all of those incorporations meant zero-cost operations to Deportivo. The same year in which Colotto arrived Zé Castro came in a loan deal, while Lassad and Laure were promoted from Deportivo B.

Later Daniel Aranzubia, Mista and Mexican striker Omar Bravo joined Depor after ending their contracts with their previous clubs. The same thing happened on the past year as Juca came for free from Partizan, while left-back Brayan Angulo  was signed in a loan operation  with the company Invertfultbol.

And the pattern has been the same on the present summer window, because the first two incorporations have meant zero-cost operations. This after Michel came loaned from Valencia and as right winger Saúl is close to announce his signing for Deportivo as he is ending his contract with Elche FC in June.

This doesn’t mean that Deportivo is not investing money in its reinforcements, because after all it has paid an amount for the loan of the players, and actually in the period it already fulfilled the buyout options of Ze Castro  and Filipe.
