Toulouse midfielder Manu Garcia: Barcelona signing Tobido similar to Varane

Toulouse midfielder Manu Garcia is backing Jean-Clair Tobido for success with Barcelona.

The defender will join Barca at the end of the season and Garcia has likened him to Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

The on-loan Manchester City midfielder said, "He's a great player.

"Similar to Varane? We do not like comparisons, but it's true that he has similar characteristics.

"Currently, we see little. It's a situation and it affected us in Ligue 1. When we see him, we talk about it in the locker room. He has great qualities."
