Javier Mascherano’s agent will meet with the Barcelona hierarchy next week to discuss his client’s future.
The Argentina international has been heavily linked with a switch to Napoli this summer, with Coach Rafa Benitez desperate to reunite with his former Liverpool man.
However, new Blaugrana Coach Luis Enrique claimed upon his arrival that the 29-year-old would make the ideal captain following Carles Puyol’s departure.
As such, respected Sky journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has revealed that the player’s representative will discuss matters with the board members at Camp Nou to confirm the club’s strategy going forward.
Meanwhile, Napoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon has revealed that the Partenopei are still optimistic about signing Mascherano.
