Mascherano Has a Big Decision to Make

Mascherano Has a Big Decision to Make

With Barcelona in the middle of a centre-back crisis, with Samuel Umtiti side-lined for two months, another of our players quite capable of playing in that role could be leaving us sooner than we thought.

It`s been widely accepted that Javier Mascherano will be leaving the Camp Nou at the end of the season, but today it is being reported that circumstances could contrive that see the Argentine leave the club in January once the transfer window opens.

The news source Mundo Deportivo is reporting that having not played on a regular basis this season, Mascherano is worried that a lack of first team football could put his place in the Argentine squad for the forthcoming 2018 World Cup Finals, in Russia, at risk.

Although Mascherano is currently side-lined, until mid-December, with a hamstring injury, the player clearly has a lot of deep thinking to do, it will be interesting to see what the outcome is.

Will Mascherano wave goodbye in January or will he stay until the season ends in May?
