Barca Confirm Mascherano Will Join Hebei China Fortune

Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano will join Chinese Super League club Hebei China Fortune on Friday, it has been confirmed.
The Catalan giants released a statement on Wednesday confirming the news, a day after official reports the Argentine would be ending his stint at the Camp Nou.

The Blaugrana play Espanyol in the second leg of their Copa del Rey quarter final on Thursday evening and it is thought Mascherano will say goodbye to the fans prior to kick-off.

No transfer fee has been confirmed, although it has been reported the move will be worth in the region of €7m.

In China, he will link up with international team-mate Ezequiel Lavezzi and play under former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini.

Mascherano played 334 times for Barcelona, scoring his only goal in April when team-mates urged him to take a penalty in a 7-1 rout of Osasuna.
