Barcelona determined to sign Man City defender Garcia before market shuts

Barcelona are determined to sign Manchester City defender Eric Garcia before the market shuts.

Mundo Deportivo says Barcelona are set to return to City with another formal offer for Garcia as the Nou Camp giants try one last time to secure a deal for their former player.

Garcia has confirmed his intention not to stay at City longer than his current deal, which is set to expire at the end of the season.

Barcelona are eyeing a cut-price deal for a player who came through their La Masia academy, and Ronald Koeman is ready to table a formal offer.

There were reports of an initial £7.2million offer at the start of September that was knocked back by City, and Barca are now set to come again with an improved bid in an attempt to secure the signing.
