“We will reach an agreement” – Barcelona confident of completing signing of Manchester City star

Sources at Barcelona have been quoted as sounding very optimistic about completing a transfer deal for Manchester City defender Eric Garcia.

The Spain international is nearing the end of his contract at City and Pep Guardiola has more or less confirmed that the player is most likely on his way to the Nou Camp.

Now Mundo Deportivo claim Barcelona are confident of reaching an agreement for Garcia, with a source quoted as saying: “In the end we will reach an agreement.”

This should be a fine signing for Barca, who could do with bringing in a top young centre-back as a long-term successor to the ageing Gerard Pique.

Garcia has shown great potential at City, and it’s a blow for the Premier League giants to see such a promising young player moving on before he’s given them his peak years.
