Garcia has earned early comparisons with his rival at Juve, who this week he has admitted he has great respect for.
"I got to talk to him for 10 minutes when Juventus came to Trigoria for training for the Super Cup," mused Garcia to reporters this week.
"It was a short meeting, but it was enough to understand that in front of me was a person of great depth.
"I admire him for the results he has obtained and because he is a fighter. He has a spirit that is in common with his team."
