Barcelona Players Move to Chinese Club
Barcelona will most likely be left behind by defender Javier Mascherano in January 2018. Mascherano is one more step in joining China’s Hebei China Fortune club.
Hebei is very interested in bringing Mascherano early 2018 later. They are willing to pay to Barcelona, although can get Mascherano for free summer 2018.
Mascherano’s contract with Barcelona will expire at the end of this season. Barcelona initially hopes to keep Mascherano at least until the end of the season. They do not mind Mascherano going away for free next summer.
But according to the latest report reported by Sport, the Barcelona officials have given up to maintain Mascherano. They have accepted the reality Mascherano will leave in January.
Hebei is said to be currently negotiating with Barcelona about the transfer fee of former Liverpool and West Ham United’s players. It is expected Mascherano’s move will be completed before the Christmas holidays.
This season Mascherano began marginalized from the main team of Barcelona. Argentina’s man was outclassed by Samuel Umtiti who became the choice of coach Ernesto Valverde.
This condition makes Mascherano upset. He wants to go in January because he needs to play regular. If continue to be reserved, Mascherano could be threatened not brought the Argentina national team to the 2018 World Cup.
If Mascherano goes in January, Barcelona will buy a new defender. One of the players who is said to be purchased is Yerry Mina from Palmeiras.
Barcelona is said to have the option to buy players from Colombia and will be activated in 2018 later.
