Reportedly, Barça are already negotiating with Manchester City for teenage former La Masía central defender Eric García, whose contract expires in 2021.


According to the Spanish news outlet SPORT, Barça are currently negotiating with the English giants Manchester City for the transfer of 19-year-old centre-back Eric Garcia.

Eric García grew up in Barça’s youth academy La Masía, before joining Manchester City in 2017 for a mere 1.7 million euros. The young defender is highly admired and many believe that he can be the true heir to the Barça legend Gerard Piqué.

García’s contract with City expires in the summer of 2021, and the English club are happy with him being a part of their squad. Barça have approached City, and want to negotiate a transfer move for the youngster this summer.

Former City player Micah Richards was recently quoted saying that “García is the future of Man City”. The City coach Pep Guardiola is also known to be a firm believer of Eric’s game, and started him last night in a 4–0 win over Premier League champions Liverpool.

Barça has had a special place in my heart ever since I started watching football. After joining Barca Universal last year, I have been fortunate enough to share thoughts and content about the club I love with my fellow culés. The love and respect for this club keep me going in doing what I do here at Barca Universal. Hoping to share more and more victories with you culés in the future.

Yesterday, Barcelona officially sealed their ticket for the Champions League knockout stages and they did it in some fashion. Of course, the first half of the game against Dynamo Kyiv was eventless to say the least but the other 45 minutes more than made up for it.

This morning, the Catalan papers all over the team’s youngsters and their success. SPORT are saying that Barcelona’s plan B is ‘exciting‘.

But there is one crucial piece of information here for the squad that faced and demolished Dynamo Kyiv 4-0: Ronald Koeman fielded seven non-regulars and three debutants and still managed to secure Barcelona’s spot in the last 16.

And it goes without saying that this makes their perfect record in Europe intact – four out of four.

Mundo Deportivo are on the same page as their big cover says ‘Revolution and the knockout stages‘. They speak of the club’s experimental XI and their unexpected glorious success.

We saw great goals and performances from the likes of Sergiño Dest, Martin Braithwaite and Antoine Griezmann while Óscar Mingueza, Matheus Fernandes, Konrad de la Fuente and Riqui Puig all got their first minutes in the competition.

With the knockout stages secured, Koeman can now turn his attention back to climbing up the ladder in LaLiga.
