Eric Garcia mau mengikuti jejak Gerard Pique. Sama-sama memulai karier di Kota Manchester lalu akankah Garcia bisa sesuksesnya di Barcelona?

Eric Garcia dipastikan bakal merapat ke Barcelona di bursa transfer musim panas ini. Garcia tidak memperpanjang kontrak di Manchester City yang habis pada 30 Juni 2021.

Garcia sendiri bakal kembali ke klub lamanya, Barcelona. Garcia pernah menimba ilmu di akademi Barcelona tahun 2016 sampai pindah ke Manchester City di tahun 2017 lalu dua tahun kemudian baru tembus skuad utama.

Eric Garcia sendiri masih muda, masih berusia 20 tahun. Bek tengah ini mencatatkan 35 penampilan di seluruh kompetisi.

Dilansir dari Marca, jika jadi ke Barcelona, maka Eric Garcia mengikuti jejak seniornya Gerard Pique. Pique juga dulu pernah memperkuat Barcelona di tim akademi lalu lanjut ke Manchester United, akhirnya kembali ke Barcelona.

Pique juga cuma mengemas sedikit laga bersama Manchester United, cuma 23 penampilan di seluruh kompetisi.

"Kami berdua dari akademi (Barcelona) dan tinggal di Manchester," kata Eric Garcia kepada L'Esportiu.

"Gerard Pique telah melakukan semuanya, dia salah satu bek terbaik di dunia. Kini saya di awal karier, masih berusia 20 tahun," lanjutnya.

Gerard Pique sejauh ini sudah mengemas 566 penampilan bersama Barcelona di seluruh ajang sejak tahun 2008. 30 Trofi dipersembahkannya termasuk delapan kali juara Liga Spanyol dan tiga kali juara Liga Champions.

Bisa ikuti jejak Pique, Eric Garcia?
