Supercopa could still be played in China
Negotiations are still ongoing between the Spanish Football Federation and representatives from China over hosting the Supercopa de Espana.
The news that Beijing had approached the Spanish Football Federation filtered through earlier this season but whilst 18 clubs from La Liga agreed to listen to the proposal, Barcelona and Real Madrid who generally play in the annual two-legged affair opposed any approach.
However, that has not stopped officials from China trying to grind out a deal to convince La Liga’s so-called big-two.
Marca have claimed that whilst clubs are being offered £3m to play the Supercopa in China, both Barcelona and Real Madrid are keen to agree a £7m fee, as the Catalans made that figure in ticket sales in the last Supercopa.
Meanwhile, whilst negotiations continue over that, the Spanish national team are receiving offers from Japan and Australia to play lucrative friendlies this year.
