Struggling Premier League giants Arsenal are the latest team to show an interest in signing Manchester City defender Eric Garcia. The interest of Arsenal in the Manchester City centre back was revealed by media outlet AFC Bell on Thursday. Spanish La Liga club Barcelona are determined to secure a return for Eric Garcia after he left the club three years ago to join the Manchester City Academy. Eric Garcia was in the Manchester City Academy for one year before he made his professional debut in the colours of the club two years ago.
Eric Garcia joined Barcelona at the age of seven and he spent nine years at the famed La Masia Academy before Manchester City signed him. Barcelona wanted to sign him in the summer but they were not able to raise the funds needed for the Spanish international who had one year remaining on his Manchester City contract.
