Espanyol, though, will go to China, it seems, to play the International Super Cup. Pending official confirmation, they will be involverd in the competitionsn with PSG, Rennes and Inter. 

The presence of Chinese striker Wu Lei is sure to make Espanyol's tour a successful one as they look to break into new markets.
