ENGLAND – Premier League giants, Manchester City, have suffered a major transfer blow after refusing to sell defender, Eric Garcia, to Barcelona this summer.
This was disclosed by football transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, on Monday night.
According to Romano, Garcia has now told Man City he will leave Etihad for Barcelona in January or next June as a free agent.
Garcia, 19, is still reluctant to discuss a new deal with Pep Guardiola’s side.
“Eric Garcia told Manchester City board that he will join Barcelona in January or next June as a free agent,” Romano tweeted.
“He won’t change his mind. Eric wants Barça as his next club.”
Barcelona had a bid of £15million rejected by Man City on deadline day, with Ronald Koeman desperate to land Garcia.
