Reports in Spain are that Javier Mascherano could be about to renew his contract with Barcelona, to end interest from Napoli.
The converted centre-back hinted towards the end of last season that his time at the Camp Nou could be at an end and Rafa Benitez has been continually linked with pushing that the Partenopei pick him up, regardless of the salary to be paid out.
However, Spanish outlet RAC1 are speculating that the 29-year-old could be about to perform a U-turn and actually commit to Barca in the form of a new contract.
It is seen that new Coach Luis Enrique has made clear his trust in the Argentine going forward and that this handed the Blaugrana first option on the former Liverpool man.
