Javier Mascherano pens Barcelona extension until 2016

Barcelona: Barcelona have announced that Javier Mascherano has signed a new contract with the club until 2016.

The versatile Argentine midfielder, who can also play at centre-back, has developed into a key player at the Catalan club since completing a €22 million transfer from Liverpool.

He has now added two years to his previous deal, which expired in 2014, to put an end to all speculation surrounding his long-term future at Camp Nou.

Meanwhile, Barca have also revealed that Mascherano`s release clause is now set at €100m.

The 28-year-old has made 97 appearances for the Blaugrana, although he has yet to break his duck in front of goal.
