Manchester City defender Eric García agreed to a five-and-a-half-year contract with Barcelona and the clubs are approaching a reduced price agreement, reports El Mundo Deportivo.
It is claimed that there is an agreement whereby the Blaugrana will pay 5 million euros, in a transaction that will take place next season, along with another 5 million euros in variables for the player, who is out of contract this summer.
In August, City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that the player would not renew his contract with the English club and that the defender is now taking center stage in Barcelona transfer news this calendar year.
The central defender has been a Cule his entire life, but joined City in 2017 from the Catalan giants, with multiple previous reports claiming they have been looking for a comeback over the past year.
Reports have drawn parallels between Garcia and Gerard Piqué, who left the La Masia youth squad due to mismanagement and joined Manchester United, before returning to Camp Nou and enjoying a long and distinguished career at the club.
Garcia started seven games for City after the return of English football in June of last season, but has been limited to just two Premier League starts this season, and none since October.
The Catalan has fallen in the hierarchical order after the arrivals of Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake at the Etihad Stadium this summer.
