Manchester City youngster eyes Etihad return and ‘big’ Champions League games

Manu Garcia is currently at his third loan club away from Manchester City, but the 20-year-old Spaniard has not given up hope yet of breaking into Pep Guardiola’s first team plans.

After one-and-a-half successful seasons at NAC Breda in Holland, Garcia was sent to Ligue 1 club Toulouse in the summer transfer window and has made a decent start to life in France with 2 assists in 8 appearances.

Speaking to Canal+, Garcia was asked about his parent club and admitted he still dreams of Champions League nights at the Etihad Stadium.

Garcia said: “Manchester City? It’s a very big club where stars play. My goal has been to play there since I was young. I want to play in the Champions League, in big matches, and there it is possible.”

Speaking of his new experience in Ligue 1, Manu admitted that the French league isn’t ideal for his skill set but that is part of the reason he went there – to test himself.

“Ligue 1 is a very physical league, it does not really suit my style. But that’s also why I came to Toulouse, I wanted to show my game and better gauge myself in a more physical league.

“It can open a lot of doors for me. I’m happy to be here, I love the football, the city and the club. I want to make the most of it and we’ll see what happens.”
