Javier Mascherano has decided to stay at Barcelona, reports Sport.
The Argentina international was strongly linked with a move to Juventus earlier this summer, but he looks set to remain at Barca instead.
Juve made a fresh attempt to recruit him recently, but the former Liverpool man rejected that option.
Mascherano believes that Barça have now shown that they value him, and it is very probable that he renews his deal at the start of August, precisely when he returns to training at the Catalan club.
News had been arriving from Italy stating that Juve were prepared to go all-out for the Argentine international.
The Turin side will have money after the sale of Paul Pogba, and they hoped to reopen negotiations, but the Barça defender has stopped them in their tracks.
He has decided to continue at the Camp Nou.
