The FC Barcelona tried until the last moment fichar to Eric García in the past market of signings of summer, but did not achieve it. It says that the culés offered en última instancia 10 million fixed euros and other 8 in variables, but the Manchester City decided to decline the proposal. The English sued more money by aims, but from the Camp Nou did not want to offer more and the central did not move of the Premier League.

But the Barcelona have not remained at all satisfied with the fact of not being able to incorporate to the defender, since Ronald Koeman does not have Samuel Umtiti. The French, that follows lesionado and could be smart for inside something more than a week, does not have the confidence of the Dutch neither with the one of the own club. By this reason, in the City Condal wanted to fichar as it was to Eric and consider to go back to go to by him in January.

Eric García, also international with Spain

The defence finishes agreement in 2021 and does not go to renew, by what the Barcelona thinks that could take it out cheaper in winter. In the club expect that the 'cityzens' are had to negotiate his sale then to take out something of money, since in contrary case the player will go free next summer. The agreement between the culés and the Catalan is total, by what only is missing to know when will be his arrival, if in January or in July.

But in the Barça do not have them all achieve with García, since the ones of Manchester do not need money and could opt for remaining it all the year and leave that it go out free in summer. By this reason, in the club, as 'Sportive World', already study alternatives to incorporate another player in January. If Umtiti does not work until then, something more than possible, the Barcelona could try fichar a 'patch' of guarantees until final of season.

The group barcelonista knows that they can not hold all the course with alone three head offices, and more taking into account that Ronald Araújo is 21 years old and faces his first campaign like footballer of the first team. Besides, the 34 years of Gerard Hammered weigh, and the Barcelonan can not play it everything. These are the reasons by which if 'Big Sam' does not surrender and wins the confidence of Koeman, the Barcelona could go to by another defender.

The quarry is an option, but look for alternative

The options of Bouquets Mingo, Mingueza and the polyvalent Oriol Busquets, all of the filial, are on of the table. Nevertheless, any the inexperience of all is a fact, by what the technical office works in finding other alternatives in the market. It could arrive any veteran yielded or to cost zero, something that already studied this summer, but that finish descartando. Everything will depend on what decide to do the City with Eric, that keeps on being the first option.
