Officials inside Barcelona’s stronghold still want the services of Spanish defender Erik Garcia (aged 19 years)
in order to meet Dutch coach Ronald Koeman’s demand to sign a central defender to cement the backline of the Blaugrana this season 2020-2021.
A day before the summer transfer market closed its doors, Barcelona made its latest offer to Manchester City to include Eric Garcia,
whose contract with the English club expires in June 2021 and can leave for free if he waits for this season inside the Union stronghold.
“Mundo Deportivo” newspaper, quoting the Catalan radio “RAK 1”, revealed today, Sunday, Barcelona’s latest offer,
which includes a new progressive proposal in an attempt to persuade Manchester City to allow the player’s departure
and the offer depends on a small transfer value, but the value of large and easy-to-achieve variables.
The newspaper pointed out that Barcelona’s offer included 5 million fixed euros in addition to 10 million euros for variables,
but it is easy for Man City to achieve it in the event that the player obtains specific participation rates and achieves the goals of the Catalan club required of him.
She confirmed that although the heavenly club does not mind the departure of Eric Garcia from its ranks this summer,
he does not welcome Barcelona’s offer and sees it as a little, recalling the value that exceeded the 25 million euros he paid in joining striker Ferran Torres from Valencia,
and that they are about to stand and wait for a market Winter,
as he will be free to negotiate six months after his contract expires.
Barcelona relies on settling the Garcia deal and realizing City’s demands to sell its French player Jean-Claire Todibo,
who is considered outside coach Ronald Koeman’s accounts,
and the player was close to joining the French club Olympique Lyon,
but his boss retreated in the last moments due to the player’s high price
and also because of doubts Which resulted from his physical condition,
but there is another club awaiting the player’s approval, which is Fulham, who is preparing to offer 18 million euros,
which is the value that Barca agrees, but the player still does not give a response, which caused anger,
and it may be the other alternative that the player may agree To join him is the German club Borussia Dortmund although there has been no offer yet.
