The possible arrival of Iñigo Martínez in summer will force FC Barcelona to do without one of its central offices. Eric García points out as the ideal discard, since the 22-year-old has played very little in 2023 (only 457 minutes)

The second stage of Eric García in the FC Barcelona could be near to arrive to his final. The defender of 22 years has explained little for Xavi Hernández in the second semester of the 2022/23 and, to concretise the signing of Iñigo Martinez, would lose his place in a staff with sufficient spare in what to head offices refers . With Andreas Christensen and Jules Koundé, In addition to Ronald Araújo and Marcos Alonso (lately has played more like head office that in the band), to the ex player of the Manchester City will not remain him another that look for team.

And this would not have to see exclusively with the sportive. For the Barça is fundamental to free mass salarial in summer to be able to fichar and close the pending renewals, by which give him gone out to Eric would turn into a priority. The club has to go down at least 200 'kilos' in payroll to adjust to the requirements of the 'fair play' financieror and the cessions or traspasos are the only road to attain it.

Xavi shows to Eric the door of exit

For Xavi Hernández, Eric García was a valuable piece in the staff until the stop mundialista. After the Glass of the World, the ex head office of the Manchester City grieve has been headline in 3 parties of LaLiga and, in what it goes of year, only has played 457 minutes of the 2.010' that the Barça has contested in all the competitions (22.7 %). The returns of Christensen and Araújo have him condemning to the bench, being in this moment the last alternative in defence.

Even Sergi Roberto, to the one who the injuries him martirizaron in the last two years, has recovered leadership in the staff, but to Eric have reduced him the minutes to the maximum in the last month. With this, the technician egarense leaves him clear that the only form in which will have more minutes will be if any one of his mates lesiona, as sucedió in the initial stretch of the season with the physical problems of the Danish and the charrúa.

The options of Eric García for the summer

If it follows without adding minutes, the situation of the defender formed in The Masia will be more complex, since for the moment it does not have offers on the table for the summer. The possible resolution of the title of League with several days of antelación can be a great help for him to play more in the final stretch of the season, a strategy that can benefit to both parts.

With 22 years, Eric prioritises regularity and, if it remains in Barcelona, will have to resignarse to a secondary role, very similar to the that has exerted Nacho Fernández in the Real Madrid during the last decade. The difference between Nacho and the central culé is that the player 'merengue' can play in any place backwards, whereas García, for the moment, never has tested luck in the bands. For now, it will be necessary to expect to the summer to see if the Barça, finally, can fichar reinforcements, something that was impossible in winter.
