Argentinean soccer legend Diego Maradona will come to work in China and help the country's soccer youth, his brand management company said on Friday.

Bi Zhifeng, market supervisor of the Beijing-headquartered Maradona International Brand Management Co, said his company is negotiating with the 56-year-old former Napoli star.

"We are still working on details, like on which day he will arrive and which cities he will visit," he said, adding that first-tier ones including Beijing and Shanghai are options and others with great achievements in soccer will also be considered.
