Manchester City Football Operations Manager Omar Berrada has explained why Barcelona couldn’t land Eric Garcia in the summer transfer window.
The teenager appeared ready to return to Camp Nou, but did not move on the deadline as the two clubs were unable to agree a fee.
Berrada has a few details about the talks and why City was delighted to hold Garcia on hold.
“He has become a top young center-back that Pep trusts and we think it was worth more to keep him this season than we were offered.
“We believe he can add depth to the squad and be important in important games.
“This is a season that will be very difficult for the players, both physically and mentally. It’s very congested, there will be a lot of pressure to play a lot of games, both in terms of club competitions and the international games they have to play. So everything is very concentrated and overloaded.
“We had a conversation with Barcelona about Eric García. We were very clear about what we thought was his rating – they were unable or willing to give it, so our decision was to keep him. We think he will be important to us. “
