Barcelona transfer news has been dominated by the possible return of the central defender, who left the club’s La Masia system in the summer of 2017 to join City but now looks set to return.

Garcia is out of contract at the Etihad this summer and has also fallen from prominence this campaign, starting just two matches in the Premier League this campaign and none since October – despite starting seven games towards the end of the previous season following lockdown.

The Catalan-native now appears set to re-join the Blaugrana on a long-term deal and become their first signing of the summer window.
