Manchester City defender, Eric Garcia, was so determined to sign for Barcelona he even agreed to a pay cut.

But he was so eager to sign for Barca now that he offered the club a pay cut on his current wages to secure the move.
The request did not make a difference, as the issue was the fee between the two clubs.
City did not budge on their valuation and Barca refused to meet it.
