‘What an upgrade’ – Some Barcelona fans reacts as the La Liga club confirm signing Garcia from Man City


Barcelona will sign Spain international Eric Garcia when his contract at Manchester City expires next month, the La Liga club have announced.

The Spaniard become the second player to leave the Etihad and sign for Barcelona in 24 hours after they confirmed the capture of their former defender.

Barca have included a buyout clause of 400m euros (£344m) in the 20-year-old defender’s five-year contract.

He will officially be unveiled on the Nou Camp pitch later on Tuesday afternoon – but the presentation will be behind closed doors due to the ongoing coronavirus restrictions.

Garcia’s youth career began at Barcelona and he captained his hometown club at every level before moving to City in 2017.

The centre-back made 35 first-team appearances for City, making his debut in a Carabao Cup quarter-final win against Leicester in December 2018.

He made 12 appearances in all competitions as Pep Guardiola’s side won the Premier League title this season but started just three matches.

In reaction to the news shared on Twitter by City Xtra and City Chief, many Man City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.
