Barcelona are facing stiff competition from Germany for Valencia superkid Fabio Blanco.

Barca are interested in the 17 year old right winger, who has been compared to Ferran Torres. The idea of signing him would be a strategic move, like buying Pedri Gonzalez was back in the day.

Former Valencia director general Mateu Alemany, now at Barca, knows the player well. He will be one of Joan Laporta's two right-hand men, his director of football, even though it's not official yet.

Half of Europe are following Blanco's footsteps, Real Madrid, Milan, Juve, Dortmund, Marseille… however SuperDeporte reports the team closest are Eintracht Frankfurt. His contract is up at the end of the season.
