Barcelona drew links to Aymeric Laporte recently over a potential summer move.
He is no longer the first option under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
Currently starring for Spain in the European Championships, Laporte could head over to Camp Nou ahead of the 2021/22 campaign. Eric Garcia, who has already made the switch from City to Barca this summer spoke on the matter.
“Aymeric Laporte coming to Barcelona? I don’t know. We haven’t talked about this,” said Garcia during Spain duty, as published by Football365.
“We are focused on the Euros, but if he comes to us, obviously he’s a great player.”
Garcia struggled for minutes at the Etihad but is viewed as a key part of Barcelona’s future. When asked about how Spain boss, Luis Enrique compares to Guardiola, Garcia said, “I can only have good words towards Pep. He knew the decision of mine not to renew, he assumed it and we had no problem. I’m very grateful for what he’s done for me.
“Is Enrique similar to Guardiola? They are similar when it comes to building the attack from behind, in high pressure, but in terms of expressiveness, they are a little different. Both are very good.”
