Messi lands in Barcelona after heroics for Argentina

Messi lands in Barcelona after heroics for Argentina

Javier Mascherano says he will make a decision on whether to remain at Barcelona at the end of the season after losing his place in the team. Valverde will surely call on Messi but he has played 180 important and exhausting minutes during the global break and travelled over 30,000 kilometres in that time.

"I'm motivated to try to repeat the performance we had in the 2014 World Cup".

Mascherano has been a key player for Barcelona ever since 2010.

One way or another, the arrival of 23-year-old centre-back would arguably leave Mascherano as the fourth-choice option for Valverde as the manager also has Umtiti and Gerard Pique to cover the role.


"I still have a contract with the club, but it's clear that maybe once the season finishes I'll I look at what to do". I'm not a player that gets angry, especially not with coaches.

"But I've not yet spoken with anyone because Barcelona have always shown that they are happy with me".

With Argentine looking as if they were going to miss out on qualification for the 2018 World Cup, in Russia, Messi hit a stunning hat-trick which had the Atletico Madrid boss, Diego Simeone, purring. "I will try in these six or seven months to prepare to be able to be in the World Cup".
