Young Manchester City defender Eric Garcia (20) has announced that he will join FC Barcelona this summer.
For several months, FC Barcelona had been working to strengthen its defense. Barred by injuries and poor performance in central defense, the Catalan club had ticked the name of Eric Garcia (20 years old). While he was already close to signing this winter, the Manchester City player has announced he will join Barca this summer.
Garcia didn’t want to stay in City
In an interview with Esportiu, Eric Garcia has confirmed his return to Catalonia. ” My return to FC Barcelona? I reflected on my future, which I think is now the best. I think it is a courageous decision. I am convinced of the step I have taken ”.
A native of Barcelona, Eric Garcia was trained at Barça before joining Manchester City and Pep Guardiola in 2017. The Spanish coach had already announced last summer that the 20-year-old, under contract until June 2021, did not wish to extend with City.
