The La Liga club have recently changed their approach to the search for a new centre-back, as Ronald Koeman has to find new ways to transform his squad after Sergi Roberto and Gerard Pique got injuries.
Barcelona tried to sign the 19-year-old during the summer transfer window, but their proposal did not meet City’s requirements. The Spaniard is out of contract this summer, plus he has informed the management he will not extend his deal. The Spanish club still want to bring him to Camp Nou, and the latest updates on Pique and Roberto can speed things up.
The Barcelona head coach will have to come up with an effective solution in the short-term until January, so Garcia seems to be the perfect option. The injuries of key Barcelona’s players could make the Catalan side meet City’s asking price for Garcia in winter to guarantee he arrives for the second half of the campaign in Pique’s absence.
However, Barcelona aren’t the only club that are interested in Garcia, so his next destination remains to be seen.
