Eric Garcia is now nearly gone from Manchester City. Goal reports he has agreed to terms with FC Barcelona. The saga is over. He will leave for free this summer.
The signing of Eric García to Barcelona will be made official after Manchester City play the Champions League final. The youngster had to agree to a lower salary than to what was offered by Bartomeu's previous board.— Barça Universal (@BarcaUniversal) May 11, 2021

What is interesting is it will be at a reduced rate than the one previously agreed to. Barca notoriously have topsy turvy finances and this deal while seemingly done a long time ago hit various snags before being done today.
Anyway, Garcia gets his wish and City can replace him with an Academy player or a smaller signing.
