Barcelona offer Brazilian attacker Rafinha to Manchester City as part of a deal for Eric Garcia, according to a report.

Barcelona have reportedly offered Rafinha to Manchester City as part of a deal for Eric Garcia.

The Catalan giants continue to be linked with a move for Garcia, but it is understood that Ronald Koeman's side are some way off coming to an agreement with the Premier League outfit.

City are believed to want €30m (£27.2m) for the teenager, but Barca are only prepared to offer €10m (£9m) for a player who will be out of contract at the Etihad Stadium next summer.

According to RAC1, the La Liga giants have now offered €10m (£9m) for Garcia but are also prepared to include Brazilian attacker Rafinha as a makeweight.

The report, though, claims that City are unlikely to accept the terms as they are looking for a straight cash deal and would not be interested in Rafinha due to their current midfield options.

The 27-year-old is back at Camp Nou this summer after another loan spell at Celta Vigo.
