Barca to get man on loan to avoid paying 15 million for Eric Garcia

Barcelona are planning on strengthening the defence in both the January and summer transfer windows. The aim is to get Eric Garcia, but they have accepted they will have to get a player in on loan in January.

Barcelona's problems in defence are obvious when Gerard Pique is not there. They are therefore looking to strengthen the centre of defence. 

'Sport' once again said that Eric Garcia is the man chosen by Barca, but they also know that Man City will not give him away for nothing in January. 

Barca's intention is to get the defender, but for nothing. They could therefore wait until the summer and get a footballer on loan in January. 

One of the players on Barca's radar is Antonio Rudiger. They weighed up signing him in the summer and now he could arrive at the Camp Nou on loan. 

The cited source gives other names like Matip, Mustafi, Fazio and Pezzella. Matip will not leave as he has had injury problems, Mikel Arteta does not count on Mustafi while Fazio and Pezzella are both in Serie A. 

Barcelona want to have strength in depth on the bench because they are noticeably weak in that area when Gerard Pique is absent. 

Even Frenkie de Jong had to play in central defence a couple of times. Now Barca are trying to make up for errors in the past by getting another central defender.
