Barcelona’s economic situation means the club has to bet on young players. They have reactivated their interest in Fabio Blanco, the 17 year old Eintracht Frankfurt forward. He left Valencia in the summer and despite links with Barcelona, did not arrive. This time the story could be different.
He signed on for two years with the German side. However he has not made his debut and Barcelona are still there.
In the winter window Barca may try to loan him with an option to buy in the summer. They will hope to convince Frankfurt to accept an offer with variables and percentages of a future sale to try and save money.
Blanco is already forming a strong partnership with Gavi in Spain’s U18s, although the latter is now up with the first team.
