The FC Barcelona insisted this summer happened in the signing of Eric García, young head office of the Manchester City. The culés arrived to an agreement with him to dress of Barcelona, but did not finish to reach a deal with the English. The throw and slackens between both clubs lasted several weeks, but finally the 'cityzens' preferred to keep to the player that accept the proposal of the group barcelonista.

As it aims the newspaper 'Sport', the agreement did not arrive by a minimum margin, of so alone 2 million euros. The blaugrana wanted to argue until the last euro of the price of the defender and finished remaining without him by fault of this. It seems to be, that to last hour of 5 October, the City presented a contraoferta of 10 fixed millions more other 10 by aims for traspasar to the Spanish.

These pluses that sued the ones of Manchester would not pay until the campaign 2020/2021 and would extend until the 2024. It seemed a reasonable proposal taking into account the context and the little time that remained so that it closed the market. But still like this, the Barça wanted to pay less and refused the contraoferta. Shortly after, the culés presented a new proposition that did not be him to the City.

The blaugrana offered 10 'kilos' fixed more 8 in variables by Eric, only 2 less than what asked the British initially to close the deal. Three of these millions in aims were for winning the Champions League, something that always is complicated, but that neither much less is impossible. But the 'skyblue' already had decided to remain with the central, refused the proposal definitively.

This "no final" arrived, as it has mentioned , after a long negotiation that put frantic in his last day. The ones of Pep Guardiola demanded in a first moment 15 fixed millions and 5 in variables, whereas the Barcelona offered 10+5. It is necessary to remember that García finishes agreement in 2021 and denied to renew, by what when seeing the enormous difference that there was, and comprising that if they did not sell it already, could go free a year afterwards, the 'cityzens' went down his demands.

Eric, very necessary for the Barça now

It was in this moment when they asked the 10+10 and occurred all what already has explained . In summary, the Barça presionó too and remained without the defender by alone 2 'kilos'. Now, months afterwards and with Gerard Hammered lesionado until can that final of season, the barcelonistas, when remembering this negotiation, perhaps throw of the pelos. Eric would be now more necessary that never and even can that it was necessary to do an effort by him in winter.
