The 20-year-old is considered one of the best young centrals in Europe at the moment. With his contract set to end soon at Manchester City, Barcelona are ready to jump in and make him the first signing of this transfer window.

 

Eric Garcia made his way up to Manchester City’s senior team and secured some valuable playing time last season.

 

However, Garcia’s refusal to renew his contract with the Citizens has seen his playing time drastically reduced this season.

 

Pep Guardiola had admitted that the player will be leaving soon and will play for Barcelona in the future,

Speaking to Goal he said “Eric Garcia is like a son. He was a guy last season that after lockdown was our best central defender. He never made a mistake and played in the quarter-final of the Champions League.

 

“He’s going to play in Barcelona and that is not an average player – he is a top player. He was not selected in the last two games and it broke my heart.

 

“That is why it is difficult for all the managers when you have a squad. You cannot imagine what it means.”

 

Eric Garcia hopes to break into Barcelona’s first team next season and could be an excellent long-term replacement for veteran defender Gerard Piqué.
