'My Time At Barca Is Coming To An End'

An FC Barcelona stalwart believes his time at the Catalan club could soon be coming to an end.

The Highest Paid Players In The World After Messi Extension

Since manager Ernesto Valverde's arrival at Barca in July, Argentina international Javier Mascherano has found himself on the bench more often than not.

The 33-year-old, whose contract expires in June 2019, has now admitted that his time at the Camp Nou may be coming to an end already.

"I think that my stage here is ending," Mascherano told ESPN.

"It makes sense that after such a long time there's not much more I can do in this club. I'm not saying it with a heavy heart. I've had the best years of my career in this club. I'll never forget it.

"I'm one of those people that thinks that you have to know when is the right time to end a stage. I would like to close mine (at Barcelona) at the right time but it doesn't really depend on me.

"I am predisposed to close it on time because when I left Liverpool it wasn't good for me, and I didn't like it. I didn't like having the feeling that I could go back to Liverpool and there was still something toxic there. And I don't want the same thing to happen to me at Barcelona."

Report: Barca's Greatest Ever XI

Mascherano has made 331 appearances for the Blaugrana since joining them in 2010, scoring one goal and assisting a further eight strikes.

Do you think Barcelona should keep the Argentine for the duration of his contract at least? Have your say in the comments section below.
