It remains this weekend before the market closes, still with issues to be resolved. It is urgent for Barça to find a player who gives a break to Pique or to Lenglet from time to time, necessary also on nights like the one in Vigo in which the Frenchman was expelled. Eric Garcia he is the chosen one after announcing to City that he will not extend his contract. He wants to return to the Camp Nou, but his departure is blocked because there is no agreement with the Manchester team in this time trial.
Ferran Soriano demands more money for a footballer who can leave for free in June 2021. Barça plays with this argument in their favor, willing to pay a figure that does not exceed 10 million euros. Asked about the question, Guardiola could not offer much more detail: “I don’t know what will happen to Eric Garcia. I can not answer. I know that he is our player and that the market ends on Monday. He wants to leave and Barça wants him, but there is no agreement ”, commented the Santpedor.
In this tug of war is the Catalan team with City, which can relax its position in relation to Eric Garcia after incorporating Rúben Days. The Portuguese center-back arrived in Manchester on Thursday and will accompany Laporte on a rear axle also reinforced by Aké, which landed on the Etihad after Bournemouth’s relegation. With more alternatives, Pep you can do without a player who openly wants to return to Barcelona. Although the agreement between the parties is missing.
