Barcelona have not given up hopes of signing Eric García.
They were heavily linked with a move for the central defender during the last transfer window bit, in the end, his club Manchester City decided he was worth more to them if he stayed at the Etihad.
That is despite the fact that he has less than 12 months to go on his current deal and will be a free agent next summer.
The Premier League club turned down a bid of £9 million for him then, but the Catalans are prepared to submit a revised bid of £7 million in January, due to the further depreciation of his contract.
García, who came through the Barcelona academy system before joining City is highly rated at the Etihad, and City want him to signa new deal, However, they could now be prepared to deal in January rather than lose him for nothing in eight months ‘time.
