Eric Garcia and Barcelona agreed on five-year cooperation, so it seemed that everything about his return to Catalonia was over. Still, Marca revealed new details. Namely, the newly appointed management of the Catalan club wants to reduce the income of a large number of first-team players, and thus to change the already agreed details with the young Spanish football player.
All of that allegedly made Garcia reconsider moving to Camp Nou. The role of the director of football has been taken over by Mateu Alemany since Joan Laporta was appointed as the president of the Blaugrana. He already started working and as the financial situation in the club is quite difficult, one of the ways to reduce costs is to change the conditions of potential cooperation between the club and the Manchester City defender.
Garcia has had an agreement with Barcelona for about a year, which would come into force in case the two clubs agree on the transfer of the 20-year-old football player. However, as the two sides failed to find a common language in the previous two transfer window, the Spanish defender has the opportunity to sign for the club where he grew up as a free agent at the end of the season.
So, in Barcelona, they decided to change the already agreed conditions of cooperation: they plan to offer a slightly lower income to Eric Garcia. Due to the new situation, the Citizen defender is forced to put his finger on his forehead and consider accepting the latest offer from Camp Nou.
Garcia was persistent in his intention to return to Barca, he refused to extend his contract with City, although Pep Guardiola insisted on his stay. His desire to prove himself in the first team of the Catalan giant is clear, in whose school he made his first football steps.
Now he finds himself in an ungrateful situation, due to a financially weaker offer than previously agreed. However, the Blaugrana sports sector still wants to sign him, but under different conditions, due to obvious financial difficulties, which will force the management to sit down with the players who are already under contract with the club, in order to negotiate a change of conditions Eric Garcia can already negotiate with the interested clubs, it is clear that the new change of the situation will set off alarms in many other clubs, so it will give City hope that they can keep him. The talented Spanish football player is facing an important decision.
