,

Manchester City

’s player who was a product of La Masia is going to return home. According to

Fabrizio Romano

Manchester City signed

Ruben Dias

and

Nathan Ake

during the summer transfer window yet they didn’t let Garcia leave the club.

Stones

The 20-year-old will have to fight

Samuel Umtiti
