Barcelona have not given up on signing Man City central defender Eric Garcia. According to ‘Marca’, the Catalans have made City a final offer.
However, the bid has been reduced from eight million euros guaranteed to five.
Barcelona have 24 hours to persuade Man City to sell Eric Garcia to them. The transfer window slams shut on Monday and footballers will not be able to be signed after this day.
The La Liga side are doing their best to get Eric Garcia. ‘Marca’ says that in the last few hours, Barca have made Man City another offer. But the bid has actually been lowered.
The newspaper reports that Barca have gone from offering eight million euros guaranteed to just 5. They even offered 10 million before that.
City have not taken long to respond. The English club have turned it down as they want 30 million euros.
Koeman has kept a place for Garcia at Barcelona. “We want to sign Eric Garcia, but I don’t know whether we will be able to get him to come,” he said recently.
The English outfit are clear they are not going to give Eric Garcia away on the cheap. Barca now know what City’s financial demands are.
