Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola spoke about Eric Garcia’s future after his side’s Champions League win over Porto on Wednesday.

The teenager played all 90 minutes of the game at the Etihad Stadium that resulted in a 3-1 win for the hosts.

Guardiola was asked about Garcia after the match and reportedly said he hopes “we are able to seduce Eric García to stay with a good contract.”

Garcia is out of contract at Man City at the end of the season and able to leave for free. It’s expected that Barcelona will try to bring him back to the Camp Nou either in January or next summer.
