The Chinese Sports Dream

President Xi has 3 dreams: for China to qualify for, host, and eventually win the football World Cup. When the President dreams, the Chinese bosses wake up: Buy-out of top European football clubs, billion dollar international M&A, sky-rocketing media rights fees - the Chinese sports market is booming.
