Valencia officials believe Blanco could become the ‘new Ferran Torres’ because of his similar playing style and ball skills to the now Manchester City man.
According to the report, coaches who worked with him during his youth believe he will become “ the next superstar in Spanish football. ”
Both Barça and Madrid will see if he joins their B teams on his possible arrival, but for the first team for the preseason.
Los Blancos, still hurting from missing Pedri in 2018 for their arch rivals, have a particular interest in getting a hold of Blanco.

Premier League clubs Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are also interested in signing the youngster, but are at a disadvantage as they will have to wait until he is 18 before they can take any possible steps.
AC Milan and Juventus are watching him closely from Italy, while Bundesliga clubs are also watching him.
