Reports from Spain indicate that Barcelona midfield maestro, who also plays as a defender, Javier Mascherano, could leave the club at the end of the season.

NAIJ.com can confirm that Turkish giants Galatasaray have contacted representatives of Maescherano as they look forward to having the Argentine.
It was also gathered that the meeting between agents of both parties went well and a deal of over £4million could be arranged.
Despite having a buy-out clause of £85m, Mascherano whose deal at Camp Nou runs till 2019 could be allowed to go for much less.
