Chelsea started negotiations with 17-year-old Spanish starlet

Chelsea and ,am United are reportedly among the transfer suitors for Valencia winger Fabio Blanco. However, Real Madrid and Barcelona also want him and have the edge over their PL rivals because the Spaniard’s age means English teams cannot enter the bidding until next year.

Blanco looks a big prospect and he’s already been approached by Real and Barcelona as he nears the end of his Valencia deal. The 17-year-old seems like he has a big career ahead of him and he could already be on the move to one of Europe’s elite.

One imagines the likes of Chelsea and Man United will continue to monitor Blanco’s progress in the years to come, perhaps with a view to signing him later on.

Chelsea have brought through a number of talented young players recently, so could be an attractive destination for Blanco if he doesn’t get the first-team breakthrough at the Bernabeu or Nou Camp soon.

Likewise, Red Devils also have a proud record of promoting and developing youth, so could also end up being a good option for the Spaniard in the next few years if he doesn’t end up playing as often as he’d like.
