Barcelona says Argentina international Javier Mascherano has agreed to extend his contract with the Spanish champions until June 2019.

Club executive Albert Soler says “we have reached an agreement to improve (Mascherano’s) contract” without specifying the financial details.

Since his arrival in 2010 from Liverpool, Mascherano has played in 282 games for Barcelona and helped it win 16 titles, including two Champions League crowns.

The 32-year-old Mascherano plays as a central defender for Barcelona alongside fellow first-choice centerback Gerard Pique. He has previously played in various midfield roles and is considered one of the most important figures in the dressing room of the Catalan giants.
