La Liga is spoilt is for talent. Barcelona and Real Madrid's squads are a who's who of the world's biggest names. Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, the list goes on.
But league chief Javier Tebas is not satisfied with the quality on show and admits he would have liked to see Manchester United star Wayne Rooney make the switch from the Premier League.
"I'd like to have seen Rooney play in Spain," he told AS, as per the Daily Mail. "I'd like to have seen a Premier League icon play in our league, but there's also [Franck] Ribery."

Tebas still wants to see Red Devils stopper David de Gea move back to his home nation and, despite being a Madridista, does not care what team he joins.
"De Gea is one of the best goalkeepers in the world and I wish he played in our league, regardless of who for."
Rooney has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid throughout his career, but it seems his chances of ever becoming a Galactico are over.
However, it is a completely different story for De Gea. Despite signing a new contract following his failed move to the Bernabeu in the summer, Los Blancos are still, reportedly, interested in his signature.
The Sun claim the ten-times European Cup champions are prepared to activate his £30 million release clause, although, there has been no official confirmation of a clause in his deal.
The former Atletico Madrid keeper has not been grabbing headlines this season, largely due to the improvement in United's defence, but he would still be a huge loss.
