Barcelona Have Sealed Their First Summer Signing, Check Out The Player [Photos]

There’s been a lot of talk about Eric Garcia returning to FC Barcelona this summer, and it now sounds like the deal has finally been agreed and he will join on a free transfer at the end of the season when his contract with Manchester City expires and he becomes a free agent.

Like Pique he left for Manchester United at a young age before returning after amassing some experience in the Premier League, so it will be interesting to see him slot in straight away into the Barcelona defence. As he's seen as Pique's heir who's drawing an end to an illustrious career at Barcelona.

He’s looked spectacular when he does play for Manchester City and his ability on the ball is exactly what Barca need in their defence, but he has only played 16 Premier League games in his career so he may need time to settle and gain more experience in Barcelona and Pique will come in handy to show him the ropes.

Guardiola has described him as a "son" and is not particularly happy that he will be leaving for Barcelona in the summer but there's nothing that can be done to prevent him at this stage.

The fans will be happy to see one of the prized jewel return back to Camp Nou after years away from home.
