The first example of this arrangement is that of young Shanghai defender Yang Yun who will be given a trial with Juventus.
“Yun will make interest in Juventus grow in China, this boy will become a valid instrument of communication between the two countries,” Yun’s agent Oberto Petricca said.
“It's important for Chinese footballers to get to know a more professional reality. Shanghai Shenhua are a dynamic club that already has links with Sydney United. They are open to links abroad.”
