Do teams like Bayern, Barca, PSV, etc hold random tryouts to see if there's some talent outside of the Junior ranks? thanks

No because in Europe every player, even from the minor leagues is a Pro and has a contract with his team. You simply can't join a tryout to see if you are fit enough for Serie A or Premier League. If a guy is doing well in a minor league probably some talent scout hired by famous teams has already his name written in his book, and at the end of the season (or during the season) the bigger team could make an offer for "buying" the player. If you are from the USA it's a difficult concept, because in American Professional sports you can trade players or sign them as free agents, but not "buy" them. It's just like the owner of the Lakers offers for example 100 million dollars to buy Lebron, this money goes to the owner of the Cavs, not to James.

savateur is correct, unless you wait for Graeme Souness to start managing again and you can convince him you're George Weah's cousin.
