FC Barcelona continues to work on the immediate incorporation of Eric Garcia. With Sergino Dest tied up, the arrival of the Catalan center is the last of the objectives set as a priority by the Azulgrana technical secretariat.
Although at present there is still no agreement with Manchester City, Barca are confident that the negotiations will come to fruition before the market closes.
Barça is clear that they do not want to let Eric escape. His is a strategic signing and the club is willing to make an economic effort for the defender.
That does not mean that Barcelona is going to pay a price outside the market by a player who finishes contract the next summer, but yes it is certain that the organization culé assumes that it will have to pay an amount superior to the 10 million initially anticipated.
At least, the operation will revolve around the 15 million more variables, in the end, no player ends up entering the operation. The names of Rafinha and Zinchenko are on the table, although no decision has been taken in this respect.
The azulgrana team values Eric Garcia’s gesture of resisting Manchester City’s offers of renewal. The player has been brave in betting everything to the Barca and the club does not want to leave it “thrown” one year.
Eric is very grateful to Pep Guardiola and it would not have da disadvantage to follow in England one more season, but logically the ideal situation is that it can dress of azulgrana this same course.
Manchester City is aware that the player’s desire is to return to Barcelona, so the ‘sky-blue is also interested in reaching an agreement for Eric.
The recent arrival of Ruben Dias suggests that City are prepared to let the center-half. If not, the player will leave next summer without leaving a euro in the club’s coffers.
