Manchester City seem to have kicked into gear after a slow start to the season. Pep Guardiola's men have been in impeccable form, winning their last five matches in all competitions.

The Sky Blues host Birmingham City in the FA Cup on Sunday in what should be a straight-forward game for the Premier League side. The Spanish manager will hope his side can come away with the victory and continue their winning streak.

With that being said, here are the latest Manchester City transfer news on January 9th, 2021.

Spanish defender Eric Garcia has agreed a deal to return to Barcelona in the summer. The 19-year old is a product of La Masia and will finally make his dream move back to his boyhood club.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Garcia will join Barcelona on a free transfer once his contract expires in the summer.

The Spaniard couldn't make the impact he wanted in Pep Guardiola's side and failed to become a regular starter for the Cityzens. Barcelona see Garcia as the natural successor to Gerard Pique.

According to Bruno Satin, new PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen on signing his compatriot this summer. The 32-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and will be allowed to leave Manchester City for free.

City themselves have not started negotiating a contract extension for the Argentine.
