Barcelona star Javier Mascherano could leave the club next summer

Javier Mascherano played the full 90 minutes at centre back as Argentina beat Ecuador 3-1

Mascherano has made more than 300 appearances for Barca in all competitions since joining the club from Liverpool for €24 million in 2010.

With Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti forming a solid central defensive partnership, minutes are becoming scarce for the midfielder-turned-centre-back and he will study his options.

And the Argentinian admits the time may have come for him to look for a new club in search of regular first team football.

Mascherano's Barcelona deal runs out in 2019 but the 33-year-old admitted to TyC Sports via FourFourTwo: 'I have my contract to honour with the club but, obviously, once the season is over, we'll see what needs to be done.

The Argentina worldwide is under contract until 2019 but could be set for a rethink as he competes with Samuel Umtiti and Gerard Pique for game time.

"I haven't spoken to anyone about it yet".

"I try to fight for my place in the team, likes always, and to be motivated and ready for when I am called upon".

And they would be getting a player who is totally focused on only club matters next season, with Mascherano deciding to retire from worldwide duty after the World Cup.

"My time with the national team will come to an end in Russian Federation and won't go on any further", he said.
