The Girona player has been a Barcelona fan since he was a kid and wants to play for the LALIGA champions.

Girona midfielder Aleix Garcia has declared an undying love for LALIGA champions FC Barcelona.

The 26-year-old, who has been a lifelong Barcelona fan, has made his intentions to play for the LALIGA giants public. 

LALIGA midfielder’s love for Barcelona

Garcia’s comments come at a time when Barcelona are playing catch-up to his team, Girona, in the LALIGA, and with both sides set to meet. 

Girona have been the surprise package this season after a blistering start to the new campaign has seen them join in the conversation for the league title.
