The FC Barcelona wants that Eric García arrive this summer and no in 2021, but if it can not reach an agreement with the City, could decide fichar to a defender of second world-wide row that serve as 'patch' until the course that comes
The FC Barcelona wants to fichar was as it was a central and the big aim is Eric García, of the Manchester City. The Barcelonan would have already an enclosed agreement with the group barcelonista for this summer or for the season that comes. The defender finishes agreement in 2021 and does not go to renew, by what could arrive entirely free inside a year. That is the baza with which plays the Baça to pay the less possible by him.
The problem is that the City does not have problems of money and does not matter him that it go free in a season. The English ask some 30 million euros to undo of him and already would have refused an offer of 10 'kilos' of the Catalans. The Barcelona have thought to offer 15, but there is very few possibilities that they accept, by what in the Camp Nou already think other alternatives.
Eric García, the central that needs the Barça
As they aim in 'Sportive World', the group barcelonista would be combing the market of head offices in these moments. The 'Plan B' to Eric is a defender of profile something lower that can fichar by a year to cover a gap in the centre of the saga. Ronald Araújo aims to be the first acting of Clément Lenglet and Gerard Hammered, but does not have Jean-Clair Todibo, to the that wants to him give exit to do box.
If the French leaves , will remain only three options for the defence, by what the Barcelona wants to do with another player in the short term. The idea would be fichar to some veteran in shape of cession or of traspaso to almost cost zero. It asks that have experience, that do not ask a lot of money and that accept to be acting. The problem is that the options that have been on the table have not convinced by the moment. As it signals the mentioned sportive newspaper, Thiago Silva was the first footballer that refused the culés.
The Brazilian asked two years of agreement, an important role and a lot of money, something that do not look for the blaugrana. Besides, in the Barça also refused to David Luiz, Rugani or Musacchio, that could do been other alternatives. Even it spoke of Marc Muniesa or Alberto Botía, ex canteranos with experience and with good deal of balloon, but the reality is that any of them gives the level to day of today.
It will expect to Eric, but sound Garay and Beautiful
For the moment, it will try presionar to the City for fichar already to Eric, but the club already has spoken with the Catalan and both parts would agree in postponing a year the signing if the 'cityzens' do not go down his pretences. In this case, will reactivate the 'Plan B' and will look for to another defender that fulfil the requirements mentioned. The last head offices that have sounded have been Ezequiel Garay, that is free and could arrive free, and Mario Beautiful, that does not explain too much for the Cholo Simeone. In the case of the ex canterano madridista, it would be necessary to ask a loan, but seems complicated that the rojiblancos allow it.
