    Here's one main reason Iranian players aren't as favorable as other Asian players for European clubs:

    And this is just one revenue stream. There are also TV rights, sponsorships, other merchandising, tours, etc.

    The fact is, these revenue streams make non-Iranian Asian players more palatable for European clubs and may help completely offset (or in some cases, even return a profit) for any transfer and wage fees.

    Obviously, these revenue streams aren't possible for Iranian players. European clubs take on much more of a financial risk when signing our players since they don't have marketing revenue to mitigate risk.

    This is all for a good Asian player, Wu Lei. Although he's good for Asian standards, he doesn't hold a candle to Sardar, for example, or the wealth of other talents we have playing in substandard leagues (Gholi, Saman, Delfi, Taremi, etc.).
