The highly-rated 19-year-old centre-back has been at the centre of interest from Barca throughout the summer after Pep Guardiola revealed that he did not want to sign a new contract at the Etihad Stadium
According to a report by Daily Mail, Barcelona have updated their bid for Eric Garcia, offering Manchester City €14 million, as Ronald Koeman looks to prise the Spanish defender back to Camp Nou before Monday’s transfer deadline.
But RAC1 claims the deal is getting ‘complicated’ as City continue to demand €20m. Barça made the last offer with €5m fixed + €10m in variables, and both teams are firm at this is time.
City need to sell him this transfer window if they don’t want to risk losing him without receiving any sort of transfer fee. He will be free to negotiate with other clubs come Jan. 2021.

Either get full value from Barca, or bench him for the year and let him go for free next year. Simple.

It’s an actual joke to offer 5 million plus variables. Rather let him see out his contract.

Barcelona really are an embarrassment to their history. Are they really that poverty stricken? More than a club? Yeah, a club biscuit.

Unless Pep has any plans at all to use him then need to sell, even if Barca wont pay what we want. We now have 4 CB ahead of him in squad, all of whom I have confidence in to do job, but shortage ofstrikers
