Already it does a lot of months that the FC Barcelona marked like ojetivo the signing of Eric García, defence of the Manchester City. The Catalan formed in the Masia, left to the English team when were 16 years old and now that has 19 has turned into one of the important players for Pep Guardiola. His agreement finalises in June of 2021, what turns him into a very appetizing option for the culés.

The past summer, the FC Barcelona was very near to concretise his signing​. So much the Barcelona group and like the own Eric García had clear that wanted to go back to joint his ways, although the operation finish frustrating because the Manchester City did not facilitate his exit. The culés made until four offers by him -the last, of 10 fixed millions more 8 in variable- but the British group asked 20.

Now, the plans of the Manchester City seems that they go by a very distinct way: the one to convince to Eric García so that it renew his agreement with the English team and do not leave to the FC Barcelona like free agent in summer. Like this it has it planned Pep Guardiola that, in spite of that has to other four head offices in the staff, pretends to convince him so that it renew and do not accept the offer of the team culé.

Like this it recognised it the own technical 'cityzen' after the victory against the Port wine, in which Eric García was to title. "I am very happy with the party of Eric. I know that it wanted to leave , but at the end it has remained and perhaps we can it convince so that it renew his agreement with us. It is a player that is very stable in a lot of things, and are loved to be able to to have he", said, in press conference.

Competition for Eric García

It is necessary to remember that the Manchester City reinforced the past summer his defence with players of level. To Aymeric Laporte and John Stones, head offices that already were in the staff, added Ruben Dias, by which the club 'cityzen' paid to the Benfica 68 million euros more 3'6 in variables; and to Nathan Aké, that recaló in the Etihad in return of 45 millions paid to the Bournemouth.

Like this the things, Eric García will have it complicated to have continuity in the alignments of Pep Guardiola but the true is that, if the technician of Sampedor wants to convince to the young defence so that it remain , will not have it easy leaving him in the bench. It is thus that it could give prominence him in spite of the competition, although it seems that the ex canterano culé already has it decided: it wants to triumph in the Camp Nou.
