Man City boss Pep Guardiola confirms that Eric Garcia will be heading to Barcelona for free this summer

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Eric Garcia will be heading to Barcelona for free this summer.

Garcia, who passed through Barca’s academy before joining City in 2017, turned down a new contract with Etihad last summer and will be a free agent at the end of the campaign.

The defender appeared only ten times this season and was not part of the roster, as City won their fourth consecutive Carabao Cup on Sunday in a 1-0 victory over Tottenham.

When asked about the rotation of his squad after the win at Wembley, Guardiola said: ‘There are even players who don’t play games. I am thinking of Eric Garcia, one of my favorite players.

“I’d love to have 15 Eric Garcia’s for the way he behaves. He always thinks about the team.

‘He is always a good face in good or bad times. He helps the manager and the staff in the back room all the time.

Guardiola insisted that the 20-year-old is one of his favorite players, despite only playing 10 times in all competitions this season.

“He’s going to be a great team and when people say they’re dissatisfied if I don’t play, I think of Eric.

‘He’s not usually on the couch because he’s moving to Barcelona, ​​I hope so. It’s hard, but it is what it is. ‘

Garcia has made just two starts in the Premier League this season with two appearances outside the bench.

The center-back was behind John Stones, Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte in the pecking order while Nathan Ake is also fit and on the bench at Wembley.
