Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano will see out his career at former club River Plate, according to his brother.
The Argentina international started out at River Plate and spent two years in their first team before joining Brazilian outfit Corinthians.
The 32-year-old still has more than two years left to run on his deal at the Camp Nou but his brother Sebastian believes he will return to the club where he started his career.
Speaking to Radio Mitre, Sebastian Mascherano said: “I would say that he (Javier Mascherano) is going to retire at River [Plate]. It is a club that gave him a lot. Everything that he achieved he achieved because of River, because it was a big window.
“Javier is going to want to return to River to start his career as a coach.”
