Javi Garcia has completed a £13m from Manchester City to Zenit St Petersburg.
The Spanish midfielder arrived at City from Benfica in 2012 in a £15m move, but never quite made his stamp on the team, although he did have some long stretches in the team in his first year.
But last season in particular, Garcia devolved into a non-descript, forgotten man at the Etihad, so it’s quite amazing that he’s been able to command such a fee, though of course Zenit aren’t exactly on the breadline.
After three years watching him for City, I still have no idea what exactly Javi Garcia does; if someone could enlighten me that’d be great.
