Is La Liga now better than the Premier League?

With three teams in the Champions League semi-finals for two years on the trot, Liverpool spanking Real Madrid both home and away and United humbling Serie A champions Inter the Premier League was billed as the best league in the world by the majority of the UK press.

But Barcelona's 2-0 win over the Red Devils in Rome put a spanner in the works of the Premiership flag wavers and now Cristiano Ronaldo's £80m world record transfer to Real Madrid has further underlined that the balance may have tipped in favour of La Liga.

Last week Brazilian wizard Kaka moved to Spain in search of a new challenge after winning both Serie A and the Champions League with Milan and now Barcelona are reported to have made a £25m offer for Manchester United centre back and defensive rock Nemanja Vidic.

So has La Liga overtaken the Premiership and Serie A as the best league in the world? Only next year's Champions League will tell.
