Eric Garcia, a former La Masia graduate return to FC Barcelona is a question of when it will happen, as per reports from Sport.

The youngster has made up his mind he wants to go home and hopes an agreement can be reached with Manchester City to let him leave for Spain this summer.

If the Cityzens refuse to negotiate or ask for too much money, he’ll leave on a free transfer in 2021 and join Barça then. As at now negotiations have been put on hold until the two sides are no longer competing in the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola has handed Garcia a regular place in his team in recent weeks in the hope it would change the defender’s mind.

Camp Nou officials have told the Spanish youngster he wouldn’t be guaranteed a starting spot and would need to compete with Pique, Lenglet and Araujo for playing time.

The Blaugrana want four central defenders next season. Pique and Lenglet are the first choice pairing and Araujo, who will soon receive his Spanish passport, is to be the third.
