The central ends contract in 2021 and does not respond to the renewal offer while the Blaugrana team follows suit.
Eric Garcia has in suspense Manchester City. The player ends his contract in one year and has become the object of priority desire of a Barcelona that will come off Samuel Umtiti and considers that the Martorell footballer is the ideal player to replace him as the team’s third center back with prospects of consolidating as a starter soon.
The 19-year-old knows that his main supporter in his beginnings as a professional in the Premier League has been Pep Guardiola, who has given him several opportunities.
The point is that Guardiola also has only one year left on his contract and for the moment he has not started the negotiation to continue after what will be his fifth year as citizen coach, without forgetting that he had never spent so much time in the same club.
“We are going to try to convince him to stay many, many years,” said the coach a few weeks ago to refer to the issue.
However, with Barcelona’s interest everything can change, to the point that Eric wants to go to Catalonia. The value, which is still not certain, is around 49 million euros.
