Fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays a report that claims Barcelona are gearing up to make another push to sign Manchester City defender Eric Garcia.
Barca attempted to sign the 19-year-old in the summer but failed to agree a fee with City. The premier league club reportedly rejected Barcelona’s offer of €10 million, plus €8m in add-ons, standing firm on their demand of a total package worth €20 million for the 19-year-old.
However, the Catalans plan to renegotiate with the Sky Blues in the hope of reaching an agreement. The Citizens could be forced to sell Garcia at a reduced fee in January to avoid losing him for free next summer when his contract expires.
According to Sport, Barcelona are willing to pay €8M for Eric Garcia in the January transfer window.
The report adds that Ronald Koeman has requested the young defender personally as Barça look to strengthen the backline.

Bad move not accepting £18m for him in the last transfer window.
I’d still accept £8m and run 🏃♂️

Sell him now as we have enough defensive cover and stones deserve to play. He deserves a chance like we all do
