Eric Garcia's departure from Manchester City is a fact. Even Pep Guardiola, the man who gave him the alternative and who trusted him the most, expects him to leave in a matter of days or months.
Pep did not comment on whether the centre-back would be an emergency reinforcement for Barcelona in January, but he did say that he will leave, either in January or June.
"We'll see what happens at the end of the transfer window. I don't think he will sign a new contract with us.
"I'm pretty sure he will leave at the end of the season and now, in this window, it will depend on the agreement between the clubs," Guardiola concluded in the press room.
After establishing himself in the first team in the 2019-20 campaign, a campaign in which he made 20 appearances, Eric Garcia, a Spain international, has played just eight in the current campaign. His move to Barca is practically a done deal.
