La Liga clubs are encouraged to sign Chinese Super League players and scouting and data reports on their best players are collected by the league’s governing body.
A Diario AS report explains how La Liga can compile a comprehensive report of each team and player in the Chinese Super League that can be viewed free of charge by all clubs in the top two Spanish football divisions.
It is part of the league’s increased push and emphasis on the Chinese market, where it is keen to improve its commercial brand and increase additional television deals and opportunities to strengthen its revenue streams.
Wu Lei, the Spanish striker and Chinese international, is arguably the most famous player in his country and is the only player who has not featured in the Chinese Super League for the national side during the past 12 months.
The idea of La Liga is that this drive would not only be good for Spanish clubs to improve their ranks, but also for the growth of football in China in a relationship that is mutually beneficial.
