Eric García is the great goal of Barça to reinforce the defense and everything indicates that the Catalan will end up returning to what was his home. In the City they have resigned to losing him and the 'cityzens' are already moving in the market to look for a replacement
"It remains him a year, but already has said us that it does not want to renew. So we suppose that it will want to play in another place". These were the words of Pep Guardiola does a week when they asked after him Eric García, that has turned into the big aim of the FC Barcelona for the centre of his defence. Everything indicates that the Barcelona go to be able to close the incorporation of the defender this same summer, since his agreement finishes in 2021 and the Manchester City is forced to negotiate.
In the Etihad were resisting to lose to this promising defender arisen of the Masia, but the statements of his trainer say it everything. In the celestial group have resignado with Eric and only is question of time that have to negotiate his sale with the Barça. Nevertheless, the 'cityzens' do not want to give off of the Barcelonan until have a substitute and from does some days work with this idea in mind.
Nathan Aké, already ex of the Bournemouth, was announced officially does some days converting like this in the first reinforcement of the City for his defence. The Dutch, that has done career in the Premier, can play so much in the left side as in the centre of the saga, something that has valued very positively Guardiola. But the Dutch, that has cost 45 million euros, does not go to be the last signing for a defence 'skyblue' that has a lot of margin of improvement.
If the ones of Manchester are feeble in some zone of the field is in his defence, by what Pep wants another central of level more. The one of Santpedor trusted Eric to short and long term and after the stop had given him confidence, but his exit has done that it insist even more in the incorporation of a defender 'top'. The player chosen has been Kalidou Koulibaly, by which are negotiating from does days.
In 'The Gazzetta dello Sport' aim that the City offers 60 millions by the Senegalese, but that the Naples asks at least 70. The president of the group napolitano, Aurelio Gave Laurentiis, demanded 100 before the pandemia, and is not had to recess so much his price. It seems that both teams would be presionándose mutually to see which has more hold. In principle, only it is question of time that there is an agreement for the sale of the African.
The City asks 23 millions by Eric
Once fichen to Koulibaly, the City will negotiate openly the course of García to the Barcelona. The culés, nevertheless, do not want to do an important outlay because they know that inside a year will do with him free. But the 'skyblues', that go sobrados of money, could insist in the 23 millions that asked the first time that the Barça headed to they. The throw and slackens between both is served, although it will not take place until it finalise this Champions League.
