Barcelona confident of re-signing Eric Garcia from City

Barcelona believe they can lure former La Masia jewel Eric Garcia back to Camp Nou, Diario SPORT reports.

SPORT: Eric Garcia to rejoin Barcelona?In their June 4 front page story, the Catalan paper states that Garcia could follow Gerard Pique’s path.

Pique left Barca for Manchested United only to return when he was 21. Garcia left Barca for Manchester City and would return aged 20.

Garcia is highly valued by City coach Pep Guardiola and has made 14 appearances for City’s first team.

However, the Barcelona-born defender is out of contract in June 2021 and yet to sign a renewal.

According to SPORT, Barcelona ‘are in control’ of Garcia’s future and have opened the door to his return.

Barca will make Garcia a major priority next season if his contract situation stays the same.

Manchester City will obviously try to renew Garcia’s contract and could offer him a bigger role in the first team.

But the temptation to return to his boyhood team and become the new Gerard Pique could see him back at Barca.
