Barcelona are closing in on a contract agreement with Manchester City's Eric Garcia, according to a report.

Manchester City centre-back Eric Garcia is reportedly nearing a contract agreement with Barcelona.

The 20-year-old's current deal with Man City is due to expire at the end of June, and he has been strongly linked with a return to Barca since last summer's transfer window.

There has still not been an official announcement from either club, with the move allegedly stalling as Barca have reduced the offer that had previously been placed on the table.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, the final details of the agreement are now being finalised, with Garcia accepting to sacrifice part of the salary that had previously been offered in order to secure a return to Camp Nou.

The Spain international came through the youth system at Barca before moving to Man City in 2018, and he has represented the English club's first team on 33 occasions in all competitions.

Citizens boss Pep Guardiola recently said that he hoped Garcia would have the chance to join Ronald Koeman's side in the coming months.
