Barcelona are reportedly unwilling to meet Manchester City's valuation for defender Eric Garcia, who has less than a year remaining on his contract.

Barcelona are reportedly unwilling to spend over €15m (£13.49m) on Manchester City defender Eric Garcia.

While the 19-year-old has recently been provided with opportunities by Pep Guardiola, the prospect does not want to sign a new contract at the Etihad Stadium.

That has thrown up the possibility of a return to Camp Nou, where he spent the majority of his youth days before making the switch to England.

However, according to ESPN, the runners-up in La Liga and the Premier League remain far apart with regards to a valuation.

Despite City allegedly looking for £27m, Barcelona are only prepared to pay half of that figure to secure a reunion with their former academy player.

Preferring to avoid losing Garcia on a free transfer next summer, City may have to reassess their stance later in the summer.
