Reveals: Barcelona was €2m away from landing Eric Garcia on deadline day


Manchester City asked for €10m fixed plus €10m in variables but Barca refused to improve their €10m+€8m bid.

Barcelona fell just €2m short to land Eric Garcia on the transfer deadline, multiple reports suggest, including Marca and CatRadio.

The Catalans offered Manchester City €10m fixed plus €8m in variables.

However, the Citizens demanded a further €2m in add-ons.

Moreover, as the sources put it, €5m out of this € 8m were 'realistically achievable' while another €2m was 'practically impossible'.

City wanted the variables to reach €10m and to be less complicated to achieve.

In any case, the deal never happened and now Barca are planning to return for Garcia in January.

The Catalan giants are now left with just 4 centre-backs with Samuel Umtiti still not fit enough and Ronald Araujo freshly promoted.
