Pep Guardiola has been talking about Eric Garcia’s future amid speculation Barcelona want to bring the 19-year-old back to the Camp Nou.

The Catalans have reportedly been in talks with Manchester City over a move for Garcia and are keen to bring him back this summer.

Guardiola says his club will do all they can to keep Garcia but admits the final decision will be the youngster’s.

“We have one more year - if they want him they must call Txiki,” he said.

“We’ll try to convince him to stay here for many years. I’m confident he will stay, but it’s his decision.”

Guillem Balague has been talking about Garcia and reckons he does want to return to Barcelona and Man City are talking about a sale so they don’t lose him for free next year.
