Eric Garcia claims he is not thinking about signing for Barcelona right now.
Just last summer, it was thought that a deal with Barcelona and the defender was all but completed.
Garcia refused to sign a contract extension offered to him by Manchester City and hinted at wanting to return to his former club. Barca, with their financial restrictions, could not tie up a deal right then. So, they decided to wait another year so they can acquire him on a free transfer.
Garcia played for Spain in the 2-1 win over Georgia. He is set to be a free agent but nothing is certain regarding his future. Barcelona need defensive reinforcements and could use one their former academy products filling in right now. Garcia has developed well in England under the guidance of Pep Guardiola.
He said, via Mundo Deportivo: “I’m focused on what concerns me, now with the national team there is a very important match against Kosovo coming up, and then what comes will come. I don’t know if it will be Barca.”
Barcelona have been in contact with Garcia for a while but either party has not come to an agreement.
