La Liga's representative in Mexico has claimed that plans to stage Spanish top-flight matches in the Central American country are in the pipeline.

Earlier this month, La Liga announced plans to hold regular-season matches in the United States as part of a league expansion plan.

The league has struck a 15-year deal with US company Relevent to play games in America but, according to Nuno Perez-Pla, the intention to take matches to Mexico is also present.

"La Liga has massive potential to be played outside of Spain," Perez-Pla is quoted as saying by Marca.

"Mexico is a key destination for us, it is the second most important country is, and after our successful matches in the US we will look to it.

"Mexico has close cultural links with Spain and many of its players have come to play in La Liga, so it is important to bring the league to its fans.

"Monterrey and Tijuana are the two key venues we would consider for games and the uncertainty regarding playing matches abroad when they see how successful it will be."

The decision to host La Liga games outside of Spain has proven controversial with fans and the Association of Spanish Footballers (AFE).
