With Barcelona’s plenty of options in one area: central defense, where Inigo Martinez, Andreas Christensen, Ronald Araujo, and Jules Kounde are all vying for two spots, Eric Garcia’s future is looking more difficult while he’s on loan at Girona with the Catalan giant willing to sell him in the summer to further help booster their financial situation.

The 22-year-old has been performing well since moving to North Catalonia, as evidenced by their 4-2 victory over Barcelona on Sunday. His reputation has grown as a result, and the football community is now more aware of his worth. Sport claims that this will get him one step closer to leaving.

Garcia won’t likely return to Girona for the upcoming campaign and he won’t go on loan, according to the Catalan daily. In the end, Garcia will either permanently return to Barcelona or be sold as the Blaugrana is eager to make a profit. If he stayed, it would probably be because one of the other four was sold.
