Barcelona's plan with young Valencia winger Fabio Blanco

The 17-year-old is out of contract from the summer and interesting Europe's top clubs

Fabio Blanco's future is still to be decided. The young Valencia winger, 17, is out of contract in June and is wanted by some of Europe's top clubs, including Barcelona.

Barca have got to work on presenting an offer to seduce the player, who has taken huge steps forward in his development in recent months.

A number of clubs have offered Fabio a first-team spot, which means that whoever wants him will have to have big plans for the attacker.

In that sense, Barça are already working on a proposal that will allow him to continue his rapid progression without his age marking the next steps. Instead, his performances will -- and they have been very good for Valencia's Juvenil A side.

One of the ideas the Catalan club are looking into is signing him and loaning him to a side where he can play minutes in one of Europe's top leagues, be that in Spain or elsewhere.

Said option would allow Barça to sign one of Spain's emerging talents -- like Pedri in their day -- without having to promise an immediate first-team spot.

Both Barça and Fabio would win in that scenario, but the competition is fierce. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are among the other sides tracking the talented teenager.
