Mascherano Leaves Barcelona

Mascherano Leaves Barcelona

Speculation, in recent weeks, has been rife with regards to the future of our Argentine defender, Javier Mascherano.

The transfer tittle-tattle had linked the 33-year-old with a move away from the Camp Nou, although it wasn`t known whether it would be in this transfer window or the summer one.

Today though, it has been announced that Mascherano will be leaving Barcelona in the January transfer window with the Argentine international having opted to join the Chinese Super League side, Hebei China Fortune.

Mascherano calls time on a Barcelona career that has spanned eight years and seen him contribute to winning eighteen trophies with the club, after coming to the Camp Nou from Liverpool, back in 2010, for a fee of £17 million, definitely value for money.

Javier, during his time with Barcelona made 334 appearances for the club and managed just the 1 goal, back in the 2016 / 2017 season, from the penalty spot.

Barcelona will hold a ceremony on Wednesday to bid the player farewell and Mascherano will be at the Camp Nou, on Thursday, to bid farewell to the Barcelona support before the Copa del Rey fixture against Espanyol.
