The exchange market returns

Barcelona's sports policy continues to be erratic. A few months ago, thanks to the intervention of Jorge Mendes, the possibility was opened that Semedo, which was non-transferable last season, ended up in Manchester City in exchange for an amount of money and the incorporation of Cancelo. Thus Barça somewhat healed their accounts and kept the position covered, however, weeks ago the message came that Semedo was once again non-transferable and there was even talk of raising its renewal.

Now, it turns out that we return to the exit box of the exchange with Cancelo (both represented by Mendes) but with the particularity that Eric Garcia is included in the operation.

This is the approach revealed by the Sport newspaper on its cover under the headline “barter for defense”. Eric Garcia is a young center back trained in the Barcelona youth academy who went to City and Guardiola has made his debut with the first team. He has lived a story very similar to the one that Gerard Piqué lived in his day.
