FC Barcelona decided to lower its offer to Eric García to sign him for free this summer. Joan Laporta believes that he cannot offer him more due to the delicate financial situation of the club and the central defender feels cheated and for now does not accept the proposal
Eric García does not go to renew with the Manchester City and will remain free when it finalise the season. The central carries a lot of months with the idea to return to the FC Barcelona, that went his house until the 16 years and that it is the team of his heart. Thus it has refused all the proposals that of renewal that have arrived him from the Etihad and also the ones of other teams interested in doing with his services.
In principle, his signing by the Barça was sung from the past summer, when the culés were near to carry it. However, there was not agreement with the City and the operation postponed . In winter there was a new 'intentona', but there was not consensus between Víctor Font, Joan Laporta and Víctor Freixa, the three candidates to the elections, by which the club could not close his arrival for this campaign.
Nevertheless, the Barcelona himself arrived to an agreement with the own Eric and pactó the conditions of his landing in summer. It agreed his wage and the years by which would sign, and only remained pending to agree the premium of signing for arriving free. But unfortunately for him, Joan Laporta has trastocado these plans with his arrival after seeing how is really the economy of the club.
The new president has arrived to the conclusion that it can not keep him to the Spanish the same offer that agreed months before and does some weeks presented him a new with lower figures. This has not seated him at all well to the footballer, that for now has not pronounced . In 'Sportive World' ensure that the player feels that it does not deserve that they go down him the offer and seems had to tighten the rope.
Eric feels deceived and the Barça will not move index card
Eric considers that it has done sufficient as so that the club keep his initial offer. The defender refused infinity of times to the City by his promise to the Barça the past summer and also has said "no" to proposals of other groups that even offered him more money. Besides, not renewing with the ones of Manchester has done that this campaign have been of the less used defenders for Pep Guardiola. Thus, it could feel 'betrayed' by part of the Barcelona and wait that go back to put him on the table the wage that negotiated in his day.
However, from the club do not have thought to give his arm to twist. The Barcelona follows wanting to to the Catalan and see him like an ideal defence for the system of game culé and with a lot of future. But in spite of this, understand that he, like the rest of players of the staff, also has to understand that the economy of the group blaugrana is the most important. Thus, in principle they do not go to change at all in the offer and will expect that it was the central the one who yield. It is evident that one of the two parts will have to yield or will be impossible that the still 'cityzen' play in the Camp Nou the course that comes.
