Marc Bartra could work again with Guardiola at Manchester City
The centre back will leave Barcelona next summer seeking more playing time
Marc Bartra has recently been making the headlines for a summer move due to his lack of chances as Luis Enrique’s last choice centre back. Former Barça boss, Pep Guardiola has been eyeing the central defender and wants the Spaniard to sign with Manchester City for the upcoming season. Bartra has been having a tough season under Luis Enrique, only making 23 appearances in all competitions. With the likes of Gerard Piqué, Mascherano, Vermaelen and Mathieu, the Spaniard has been left with very little opportunity to show his talent on the pitch along with his contract with the Catalan giants expiring in 2017.
However, future Manchester City coach, Pep, wants to add Bartra to his squad list with the elite English side. According to the Daily Mirror, Guardiola is eager to reunite with the 25 year old in England. This might be a positive move for the defender, as Pep was the one to give Bartra his debut with FC Barcelona at the age of 19.
Furthermore, the Daily Mirror report that Marc Bartra will be sold for only £9 million, if he decides to pen a deal with the “Sky Blues.”
