Ernesto Valverde's defence has taken pride of place at the forefront of his work at Barcelona and yet, with Javier Mascherano seeking a move away, the foundations of the coach's backline are looking seriously shaky.Not only is the Argentine after more game time ahead of the World Cup, Samuel Umtiti is set to be out for two months with a muscle problem.That leaves just the previously outcasted Thomas Vermaelen and mainstay Gerard Pique as Valverde's remaining centre-backs, meaning that a January exit for Mascherano is not on the table. sbobet Keeping the former Liverpool man at the Camp Nou is not as simple as it may sound, however, with the player making his biggest attempt to leave Barcelona having previously tried to do so twice before.In 2014, he feared for his place in the team after Gerardo Martino was replaced by Luis Enrique until the new coach made him central to his plans, the club tieing Mascherano down to a new contract as they won the treble.Juventus then came calling two years later and the player's tax problems with Spanish authorities meant that he was minded to leave and held talks with the Serie A giants, but technical secretary Robert Fernandez met him in the United States and earned his signature on a fresh extension to 2019 sbobet.Fernandez is set to be key to keeping Mascherano around in this latest saga, as the Blaugrana transfer chief maintains a very strong working relationship with the centre-back.The option of Yerry Mina does not gain full consensus across the Blaugrana board with the Colombian not seen as ready for a mid-season switch despite a 9 million euro summer move already agreed, and some at the Camp Nou worry it could burn out the youngster.Mascherano's summer exit would not be a disaster for Barcelona, with Mina arriving at that moment with plenty of time to survey the other options in the market, but as the club take a cautious look at how they might seek to replace Mascherano in January, the will do all they can to prevent that scenario from unfolding. sbobet
