Javier Mascherano was close to leaving FC Barcelona in the summer but chose to stay, and it was later confirmed that he’s agreed to extend his Barcelona contract through the 2018/2019 season after rejecting mega offers to join Chinese clubs.
The Argentine already agreed to sign an extension and it was announced by Barcelona that the contract will officially be signed on Monday (today). Mascherano has finally put pen to paper on Monday morning at the club offices and his signature strikes a mark on a paper that ties him to the club until June 30, 2019.
Mascherano joined FC Barcelona in 2010 from Liverpool, although his original position is at defensive midfield, the player has thrived in central defence for the Catalan giants, winning 17 trophies during his time whilst featuring in 290 games under four different managers. He’s grown into becoming Barça’s 4th captain due to his fighting spirit and leadership qualities on and off the pitch.
