Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in La Liga on Saturday, January 16.
Saturday morning's La Liga transfer talk news roundup:
Barcelona's chances of signing Eric Garcia from Manchester City in January are reportedly now slim as elections to select a new president at the Catalan club have been postponed.
The elections, which had been set to take place on January 24, have been delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, throwing the club's transfer plans into doubt.
Barca have been strongly linked with Garcia in recent months, and City boss Pep Guardiola appeared to suggest on Friday that the Spain international was nearing a return to Camp Nou.
However, according to the Daily Mail, the defender's proposed switch to Ronald Koeman's side is now in 'serious doubt', with stand-in president Carles Tusquets unlikely to be given the green light to complete a move.
Garcia's existing deal at the Etihad Stadium is due to expire at the end of June, meaning that he is currently free to speak to foreign clubs over a summer switch.
The 20-year-old has made seven appearances for the Citizens during the 2020-21 campaign.
Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Barcelona.
Dalot is currently spending the season on loan at AC Milan, where he has made 10 starts and four substitute appearances in all competitions.
While the 21-year-old has made a positive impression at San Siro, there is no deal in place for the move to be made permanent at the end of the campaign.
According to Calciomercato, Barcelona are willing to pay £10m to sign the Portuguese ahead of the Italian giants.
The report claims that the Catalan giants are eager to increase competition for places at right-back in order to ease the burden on Sergino Dest.
Despite already selling Timothy Fosu-Mensah to Bayer Leverkusen, United are expected to be open to selling Dalot in 2021.
