Real Madrid target transfer move for Man City star Eric Garcia to replace captain Sergio Ramos as contract talks stall

MANCHESTER CITY star Eric Garcia is being targeted by Real Madrid to replace captain Sergio Ramos as Etihad contract talks stall.

Barcelona came close to signing the Spain star in the summer.

Now Los Blancos are ready to snap up the player as they seek a replacement for Inter Miami target Ramos, 34.

Ramos wants a two-year deal at the Bernabeu but chiefs prefer to give one year contracts to thirtysomethings.

And Garcia, who has refused to put pen to paper on a new City deal, could be the answer.

The 19-year-old has already made the international breakthrough.

But after City signed Ruben Dias from Benfica for £64m to pair him with Aymeric Laporte, Garcia is unlikely to be a first-team regular at the Etihad.

Spanish outlet ES reckon Bernabeu chief Zinedine Zidane has his sights set on Garcia.

Real have a wanted list which also includes Bayern Munich defender David Alaba and Villarreal centre-half Pau Torres.

Torres has a £47m release clause.

But Garcia is out of contract next summer and would be a much cheaper alternative.

Although Barca remain Garcia's preferred destination, reportedly.

Ramos has also been linked with PSG.
