Talks today: Manchester City discussing selling star to Barcelona, future free transfer also possible

Posted by

Manchester City are reportedly in direct talks today over selling defender Eric Garcia to Barcelona.

The talented 19-year-old has made a real impression in City’s first-team in recent times, and could be a quality signing for Barca, who need to improve at the back after last season’s disappointments.

According to Fabrizio Romano, they’re now in talks to sign Garcia, though a free transfer when his contract at the Etihad Stadium expires next summer is also a possibility…

Romano claims Garcia himself is only looking to leave City for Barcelona – the club he spent much of his early career at.

It makes sense that the Spain international is eager to return home, though it’s undoubtedly a blow for City to lose this prospect before even getting a chance to enjoy his peak years.

Pep Guardiola has been busy this summer, however, signing two centre-backs in the form of Nathan Ake and Ruben Dias.
