Barcelona is in a state of crisis. Ronald Koeman is suddenly left without proper cover in the backline with the recent injuries to both Gerard Piqué and Sergi Roberto. Of course, Samuel Umtiti is not exactly the most reliable either so dipping their toes into the market might have to do.
According to a recent update from Sique Rodríguez, a reliable source from Carrusel Deportivo, in the winter to patch up the squad the Catalans are studying the option of signing a low-cost center-back.
Eric García from Manchester City is the obvious target at the moment, and even though there’s no real mention of price right now, he seems to be their best bet.
Of course, this is not really the first time we hear this story but the situation has never been as complex and as serious as it is now. For that reason, Barcelona won’t exactly have a choice and will have to use the transfer market as the only possible solution.
But still, they also want to avoid signing someone purely as a stop-gap defender, meaning that yes, they will aim for a cheaper player but also someone that could actually play for the team. And needless to say, García fits the bill and is looking like someone for both the present and the future.
However, first, they will have to negotiate a fair deal with Man City and with the club once again being desperate to sign someone, the Citizens may have more negotiating power in their hands.
