Barcelona are still targeting Eric Garcia from Manchester City, according to reports. They plan to prepare a new bid for the defender in January, although the future president will have to approve any potential deal.
Despite the resigning of Josep Maria Bartomeu that happened just recently, hard work behind the scenes didn’t stop. The Barcelona’s management is looking for ways to bolster the squad in the winter. Head coach Ronald Koeman and sporting boss Ramon Planes and both agree that the LaLiga side needs another centre-back.
The Catalan club wanted to sign the 19-year-old player during the summer transfer window but failed to find a compromise with Man City on a fee. The Blaugrana are going to re-start talks with the Premier League club, hoping they will reach an agreement.
The same sources claim that Man City rejected a final offer worth €10 million with an extra €8 million in add-ons. As it turned out, they required a total price worth €20 million.
