​Guardiola 'pretty sure' Eric Garcia will leave Man City amid Barcelona links

Pep Guardiola believes Manchester City are set to lose centre-back Eric Garcia.

The youngster broke through into the first team last season, but has seen his chances limited this term.

His insistence on a transfer to Barcelona, coupled with the form of John Stones, mean he is largely out of City's starting lineups this term.

City boss Guardiola believes the player will leave when his contract expires in the summer.

"I'm pretty sure he's going to leave at the end of the season," Guardiola said.

"And [whether he leaves] now in this transfer window will depend on the clubs.

"We'll see until the end of the transfer window."
