Barcelona midfielder Javier Mascherano has recently signed a new contract with the club after he has extended his deal by four more years. The official website of the club revealed the news by saying that Javier Mascherano is now contacted to the club until 2017.
The former Liverpool midfielder arrived at the camp Nou for around £ 25 million and has been impressive ever since. Even though he has been utilised in the defensive positions by the manager Guardiola last season, he managed to have a very good season. It is expected that the new Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova will continue playing Javier Mascherano as a defender.
