Manchester City’s Eric Garcia is keen to return to Barcelona, according to Sport.
The 19-year-old defender started his football journey at the Catalan club’s youth setup and join City’s U-18 side in 2017. A year later he was promoted to the U-23s, and he spent most of the 2019/20 season playing for the first team under Pep Guardiola as City failed to make up for the departure of Vincent Kompany last year.
However, City appear keen to add another centre-back to their ranks this time around and they’ve reportedly already agreed a deal to sign Nathan Ake from Bournemouth.
Guardiola has apparently long been keen on bringing Barcelona’s Sergi Roberto to the Etihad, a highly versatile player who can perform well both in midfield and on the right defensive flank. Though his efforts in the past proved fruitless with Barcelona determined to keep Roberto, his club have raised the question again in light of Garcia’s desire to return to the Camp Nou.
