Arrived this summer at the end of his contract with Manchester City, Eric Garcia has chosen to return to his training club FC Barcelona.

Back in the presidency, Joan Laporta quickly set a clear goal: to rejuvenate the workforce available to Ronald Koeman and bet on players from the center of FC Barcelona training. Eric Garcia therefore had the perfect profile. Former La Masia, the defender who left for Manchester City was coming to the end of his contract and like Memphis Depay and Sergio Agüero , he did not ultimately cost nothing in transfer compensation. Still, Garcia could very well have snubbed Barça to join another great from Spain.

Garcia has been proposed to Real Madrid

According to information from El Nacional, Eric Garcia's entourage would have approached Florentino Pérez , before turning to FC Barcelona . The Madrid president is said to have initially taken the move into consideration, with the idea of ​​completing a rookie at a lower cost, but above all playing a dirty trick on a long-standing rival. Finally, the Catalan media explains that the president of Real Madrid would have decided to study other files and would therefore have let go Garcia… who would only then have agreed with Barça.
