"La Liga is global entertainment and we want to grow the worldwide appeal of La Liga", Tebas explained.

Despite one major promoter saying the move "will happen", the Premier League has no plans to resurrect the idea.

La Liga president Javier Tebas is studying an offer from USA -based promoter Relevent Sports to have Real Madrid and Barcelona play regular-fixture matches overseas starting in the 2018-19 season.

'As part of that effort we are discussing the option of playing some of the league matches outside of Spain'.

Regular season La Liga matches could potentially be held overseas, most likely in the US or China, as soon as next year. "If we want to compete with Premier (League) of Bundesliga we have to add value", Tebbas said.

In July, 66,000 people filled the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami to watch a friendly between Real Madrid and Barcelona, the first time La Liga's biggest two sides had met outside Spain since 1982.The game was organised by the International Champions Cup.

"The future [for Relevent] is to do games that are official games in the US, China and other places", he said at the Soccerex event in Manchester this week.

Charlie Stillitano, chairman of tournament founders Relevent Sports, has backed the idea of staging competitive matches in ICC locations, including the United States and China. "In the short term, this is not going to be possible".

It has been speculated that Barca and Espanyol, who meet in a derby match on Saturday, could have the chance to play in France's Ligue 1 if the independence campaign is successful. These projects still need to be developed.

"I am certain that the TV rights for a Catalan league would not give them as much money and they would no longer be a top club in Europe", he warned.

"Clearly, La Liga is global entertainment and we want to grow its worldwide appeal. We're working on it".
