Guardiola said the club offered García a new, improved contract to keep him at the club beyond 2021, but the defender has officially declined the offer and is ready to move on from the Etihad.
“Eric has communicated to us he does not want to extend his contract with City. He has one year left and does not want to re-sign. We want him to stay, but he does not. We imagine he wants to play somewhere else.”

Barça have not been shy about their interest in García and want him to come to Camp Nou this summer, and things could move quickly after the player has officially told City about his intentions to leave. City seem to have already moved on from García, signing AFC Bournemouth defender Nathan Aké for a reported €45 million.
