Barcelona ready to cash in on Eric Garcia next summer

Barcelona will reportedly look to cash in on versatile 22-year-old Spanish defender Eric Garcia in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Spanish outlet SPORT, Eric Garcia might not resurrect his stuttering Barcelona career. The reigning La Liga champions are ready to part ways with the versatile 22-year-old defender in the 2024 summer transfer window. Meanwhile, Girona might secure his services on a permanent deal if they seal UEFA Champions League qualification.

Eric Garcia: Reviving His Career At Girona

Eric Garcia has found a stable footing since joining Girona from Barcelona this past summer. The Spanish international had to wait until the final hours of the Deadline Day to seal a loan deal at Estadi Montilivi. But he has not looked back since moving across Catalonia to Girona.

The 22-year-old is a versatile defender who can play as a centre-back and a holding midfielder. Garcia has been a pivotal figure for Girona this season, turning out 15 times while chipping in with one goal. He has played his part in the Catalan club’s rise to the top of La Liga, with Real Madrid ahead of them on goal difference.

An undisputed first-choice starter for Girona, Garcia will be instrumental in earning Girona a top-four finish in La Liga this season. But his exploits might not be enough to earn him a spot in the Barcelona defence in the 2024/25 campaign. Instead, the reigning La Liga champions are ready to cash in on him.

Barcelona Ready to Offload Eric Garcia

The Catalan giants are in dire straits on the financial front, with their never-ending woes not ending yet. So, it is hardly surprising that Barcelona will part ways with the versatile 22-year-old defender despite his exploits for Girona. With his stock rising again, Eric Garcia can likely provide a financial boost to Barcelona.

The Spanish international did not cost Barcelona anything when he arrived from Manchester City two and a half years ago. So, whatever money the reigning La Liga champions recoup will register as profit.

Girona will likely launch the offensive for a permanent deal if the season ends with a top-four finish. But it will be interesting to see how much Barcelona will demand to part ways with Eric Garcia in the 2024 summer transfer window.
