Today, Wednesday, a Spanish press report revealed further progress in negotiations for the transfer of Manchester City defender Eric Garcia to Barcelona in January.
Barcelona tried to include Garcia last summer, but Manchester City’s material hype preceded the deal.
According to the Spanish newspaper “Mundo Deportivo”, Barcelona has reached a deal with Manchester City to include Garcia this month, after the English club reduced its financial demands.
Manchester City had stipulated to get € 10million and the same amount as variables last summer, before cutting the figure in half, 6 months before Garcia’s contract ended.
Manchester City has agreed to a sum of € 5million and the same as the variables, in addition to their agreement to charge the base amount next year, in light of the crisis in Barcelona.
However, Barcelona will have to wait until the last week of January to arrive at a new president and the settlement of the deal with Manchester City.
