Team coach admitted Manchester City Pep Guardiola, as player Eric Garcia wants to move to Barcelona, in the current summer transfer season.
The Spaniard’s current contract with Sky Blue will expire in 2021.
Manchester City management tried to persuade Garcia of the idea of renewing his contract, but he refused to do so in light of Barcelona’s interest in restoring his services, as he had previously played in the youth academy.
When asked if he expected Garcia to leave Manchester City before the end of the transfer season next Monday, he answered. Guardiola: “I do not know”.
He added in statements published by the English newspaper “The Telegraph”: “I cannot answer this question, so I do not know. Today is our player. On Monday, the transfer window will end, so I don’t know.”
The Spaniard continued: “I do not know exactly what will happen, I know that he wants to live there, I know that Barcelona wants him but I think that there is no deal between the clubs.”
He concluded, “This is what I know now, so I do not know what will end up in it.”
