Report: How Eintracht Frankfurt beat Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid to Valencia winger

By Oliver Fisher -

Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt have beaten AC Milan and several other teams in the race for Valencia youth starlet Fabio Blanco.

Blanco first joined Valencia’s youth academy in 2019 and a big factor in his decision to leave after just two years, as per CaughtOffside, was that there were no immediate plans to promote him to the first team. It quickly became apparent that the side would face a fight to keep hold of one of Europe’s most exciting prospects and as a number of interested clubs began to gather.

The report mentions that Blanco was courted by several top European teams, including Milan, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus, plus Real Sociedad, PSV Eindhoven, Marseille and Borussia Monchengladbach. However, the teenager chose Eintracht Frankfurt in the end as their director Ben Manga successfully managed to convince Blanco and his family that the Eintracht project is the right one for him.

“Eintracht Frankfurt are hopeful they can emulate Borussia Dortmund’s philosophy of signing younger talents and developing them into world-beaters,” as per the report.

  1. “How Milan”? No I’m sorry but if you’ve been a Milan fan for the last decade atleast you should know “How Milan” didn’t sign him already… they can’t even hold on to young talent when it’s in their squad never mind pursuing it or following through with someone young and talented that they reportedly showed interest in. Losing out on players is something you can come accustom to as a fan of this club, unfortunately I don’t know when we can stop getting used to it because this article proves some things never change unfortunately or it would’ve already, they would have learned from the many young players they’ve let go or given up on.
