La Liga champions Barca are planning to reshape their squad this summer and reports from Spain suggest Mascherano, who moved to the Camp Nou from Liverpool in 2010, could leave the club.
Galatasaray are said to be keen on the experienced Argentina international, whose current deal expires in 2019, and have reportedly contacted his representative to enquire about his contractual situation and plans for the future.
The report goes on to suggest initial contact between the two parties was positive — and a deal for just over £4million could be arranged.
