Renting players is important for some soccer clubs. Often, their transfer strategy for a particular season depends on it. Sending players on loan allows teams to find places for newcomers to strengthen their squad.
Recently, FIFA announced the establishment of new rules regarding loan transfers, which can spoil the plans of many soccer clubs. According to them, soccer clubs will be able to have no more than eight players on loan to other clubs and will be able to loan out no more than eight players at any time during the season.
With the changes, the balance of power in many teams will change dramatically. We recommend you, do not forget to follow the players in the lease to make successful bets on sport. This approach may make life difficult for some clubs. Below you will find the top 3 European soccer clubs by the number of players on loan.
Maccabi Haifa, 30 players
It is one of the most successful soccer clubs in Israel, which has won the local championship 13 times. Maccabi Haifa is also the first Israeli club to have qualified for the UEFA Champions League group stage (the 2002-03 season).
A total of 30 players of the club are on loan to other teams, most of them young players who have left the team in search of playing time.
Genoa, 38 players
This oldest existing Italian soccer club was founded way back in 1893. The team has won the Italian Serie A nine times, however, the last time this happened was in the 1923-24 season. In recent times Genoa ended up in the second and third Italian divisions.
This has resulted in the team failing to strengthen its squad with superstar players, as well as a total of 38 players leaving the club on loan to other teams in the first and second Italian divisions.
Atalanta, 64 players
This season the Italian soccer club Atalanta holds the record for the number of players on loan. A total of 64 players are on loan to other teams. Even Pierluigi Gollini and Christian Romero left Atalanta on loan, leaving for English Tottenham Hotspur with the right to buy at the end of the rental campaign.
Bergamo-based Atalanta ended up in the Italian first division in the 2010-11 season. Since the 2018-19 season, the team has been a regular in the UEFA Champions League.
