A number of Manchester City fans have urged the club to keep hold of Eric Garcia amid reports of transfer interest from Barcelona.
After Spanish media outlet Sport claimed that the La Liga giants were considering bringing their former academy product back to the club, ESPN reported that they had made enquiries to the Premier League champions about the 19-year-old. The story was subsequently shared on Twitter by @City_Chief.
Barcelona ‘attentive to the new Piqué’ – Eric Garcia.
— City Chief (@City_Chief) June 3, 2020
Garcia has made 11 appearances for Manchester City this season, earning plenty of plaudits from fans and giving some impressive performances. He made six clearances in a 45-minute appearance in the 3-2 defeat away to Wolves and posted four interceptions in the home win over Everton on New Year’s Day.
The teenager isn’t the only player in Pep Guardiola’s squad being linked with a possible summer exit – Bayern Munich continue to fawn over Leroy Sane, having prepared an offer for the winger last year and openly courted him in recent weeks, with German football journalist Raphael Honigstein telling The Athletic’s The Ornstein & Chapman Podcast that an agreement between club and player is “basically done”.
Can you see Man City keeping hold of Eric Garcia this summer?
These Manchester City fans on Twitter don’t want to see Garcia being sold to Barcelona, with one supporter begging the Etihad Stadium outfit not to turn it into “another Sane situation”:
