After the recent successes of Alphonso Davies and Jamal Musiala and with the financial effects of the coronavirus pandemic, Bayern Munich will be as motivated as ever to find inexpensive young talent that could quickly find their way into the first-team.

According to Tz, Bayern have been looking at the situation of Valencia’s talented 17-year-old winger Fabio Blanco.

Eintracht Frankfurt, Barcelona, and Real Madrid are also believed to be keen.

Blanco’s contract is currently set to expire this season, meaning Bayern would only have to pay a training fee in order to bring in the player.

With zero first-team experience, the Spain youth international would be required to spend time in Bayern’s youth setup before he’ll be thrown in with the big boys.

For the Bavarians, they will hope that the situation mirrors that of Musiala, who came from the Chelsea youth set-up in 2019 and made his Bundesliga debut in less than a year, making the bench for important Champions League knock-out stage games.

This season, Musiala is now a regular fixture in Hansi Flick’s setup and has already earned two caps for Germany.
