The combative midfielder is close to completing a switch to the Camp Nou with a reported £18 million bid having been accepted by Liverpool.

Mascherano arrived in Catalunya on Saturday and will undergo a medical on Monday before penning a four-year contract with the Spanish champions.

The 26-year-old told Barça TV: "The truth is it's a dream, it's a great joy and a reason to be proud for me and my family because of what it all means, for everything they've achieved in the last few years.

"As well as being a great team they are also a great group of people. Hopefully things will go well from the start."

He added: "I'll give the same as I always have for all the teams I've played for; sacrifice, desire and I will try to do things as well as possible and help all the time.

"It's a great club with great players and I will try to adapt as quickly as possible."
