The latest word from the Spanish press is that FC Barcelona are readying a second offer for Manchester City’s Eric Garcia

Garcia to leave Man City

Spanish defender Garcia joined the Citizens’ youth ranks from FC Barcelona back in 2017.

And, over recent months in particular, the 19-year-old has begun to cement himself as a regular in City’s backline.

Garcia isn’t the most physically imposing central defender, but his intelligence and ability on the ball more than make up for that.

However, Man City look set to be forced into parting ways with the promising youngster in the near future, with Guardiola having confirmed last month that Garcia won’t be renewing his contract, which runs out next year.

Barcelona to make second bid for Garcia

Barcelona have been the club most heavily linked with a move for their former defender over recent months.

And, in the wake of the conformation Garcia would not be renewing at the Etihad, it was reported that the young stopper does indeed want to re-join the Blaugrana.

Reports then began to circulate earlier this month that Barca had submitted a £10m offer for their former star.

Now, as mentioned above, a further update on Barcelona’s pursuit of Garcia has, on Tuesday, emerged in the Spanish press.

According to Mundo Deportivo, who also state a previous offer of €10m was submitted, the La Liga powerhouse are planning to submit another proposal for Garcia this week.

MD claim that said offer will not exceed €15m, even though City want to recoup at least €18m for the centre-half.

Should Man City not drop their demands, it is understood that Barcelona would prefer to wait until Garcia becomes available for free next year:
