According to Catalan newspaper Sport, Eric Garcia has personally agreed to join FC Barcelona. The La Masia graduate is willing to return to Barça, and Manchester City has already signed a replacement, namely Nathan Aké from Bournemouth, per reliable reporter Albert Rogé.

Even though Pau Torres was on the table, the player is discarded. Barça’s decision is to sign Garcia instead and believes to complete the transfer in August. The Catalan club knows that City is giving their everything to renew with the player since Pep Guardiola values the youngster a lot, but the 19-year-old defender’s determination to return to Barcelona is clear.

Barça does not believe that the Premier League giants will keep him at the club for another season since the player’s contract expires in 2022. In such a case, the player would leave for free, which obviously is not in City’s interests.

Everyone has some kind of passion. For me, it is FC Barcelona. I started to write stories about the club I support in 2017, and have been lucky enough to be part of such a wonderful team.

All victories come with a cost and Barcelona’s great triumph over Sevilla is no exception. Sadly, the Catalans’ young prodigy, Pedri, had to leave the pitch in the second half of the clash and now, the club has officially confirmed that the 18-year-old had sustained a muscular injury.

As of right now, however, we still don’t know how serious it is and we’ll have to wait for further information, which is most likely to arrive tomorrow. Unfortunately, the early speculations are not good as it seems Pedri could indeed be out of commission for a couple of weeks at least.

Needless to say, that’s a huge hit for Barcelona since the schedule is unrelenting. Soon, it will be time to face Sevilla again in the Copa del Rey and also Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. Doing so without Pedri could indeed be troublesome.

But we also have to wonder how did it come to this injury. The 18-year-old is a key member of the squad so it’s understandable Ronald Koeman would want him to play all the time.

However, that might be the very crux of the problem too. With so little rest in-between the games, it was just a matter of time before Pedri’s body could take no more.

Still, not all is lost and he should be back in time to help Barcelona finish the season strong. And besides, now the youngster can finally get some well-deserved rest.

Hopefully the team can manage without him for a short period of time.
