Barcelona is working hard to complete its summer recruitment. After the arrival of Sergio Aguero, Barca has just made official the signing of a second player from Manchester City.
A second recruit completed at Barça!
With the official opening of the summer mercato approaching, the lines are already moving at FC Barcelona. The Catalan club has recently made official the arrival of Sergio Aguero and has just struck a second blow on the side of Manchester City.
Trained at the Masia, but left for Manchester City in 2017, the central defender Eric Garcia has made the choice to return to his formative club. Free since the end of his contract with the Cityzens, the 20-year-old player has signed for five seasons with Barça. He is now linked to the Catalan club until June 2026. On its official website, Barcelona announced that its new defensive reinforcement will be presented today, early afternoon.
Barça: A release clause set at €400 million
Trained at the Blaugrana, Eric Garcia makes his return to the fold. Not entering the plans of Pep Guardiola, the young Spanish defender has played six games in the Premier League this season. He will officially become a player of Barcelona on July 1. The Catalan club has set his release clause at 400 million euros. A colossal sum that should cool the possible suitors.
It must be said that Barça has chosen, in recent years, to increase considerably the release clauses of its players following the controversial departure of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain. The Parisian leaders had paid 222 million euros in July 2017 to secure the services of the Brazilian crack.
