Barcelona are readying an opening offer for Manchester City defender Eric Garcia.
Pep Guardiola revealed on Thursday the defender, 19, is refusing to pen a new Etihad contract.
And Barca will test the water with a £14million bid for the City starlet.
As Garcia has just a year left on his current one, City have a big call over whether to cash in on him now.
Etihad chiefs will want at least £20m up front, with a further £10m in add-ons, to consider selling him.
Otherwise they are happy to let him see out the final 12 months before going for nothing, says The Sun.
