Guradiola betrays: Garcia before switching to Barça

Eric Garcia (20) is facing a summer change to FC Barcelona. The central defender, temporarily assigned to Manchester City in the preseason, will be relieved of duty after his contract expires on 30 June. “He will play in Barcelona, I think,” ManCity coach Pep Guardiola is quoted in English media. The Catalan hardly starts his compatriot this season, the competition in the defense center is huge. “That broke my heart,” Guardiola said. He was “like a son” to him and a “top player”.
