Carlos Slim, Manuel Lovato, José Luis Orantes, Alejandro Irarragorri or Jeff Luhnow are the names of the magnates “made in Mexico” who have landed in Spanish football in recent years. Clubs such as Oviedo, Salamanca, Badajoz, Sporting or Leganés have been captured in their networks and are a business and visibility opportunity that they have not missed.

In Spain, figures like Sheikh Mansour (Manchester City) or Nasser Al-Khelaïfi (Paris Saint-Germain) have not gelled well in the First Division. At the moment, the three big clubs in Spain, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atlético, have not been bought by large investment groups or by tycoons who have managed to take over other major European football entities.
