Mascherano, who joined from Liverpool in 2010, is currently contracted to Barca until 2014 but he is set to sign on for an extra two years.

The 28-year-old told El Mundo Deportivo: "It is on the right track and I hope it will be signed shortly. I am happy, I feel valued and I want to continue for many years.

"Signing for Barca was the best decision of my life. I have won people's confidence and now I want to maintain it."

Mascherano has adapted to a centre-back role since moving to the Camp Nou, and he is hopeful new coach Tito Vilanova will continue to utilise him in defence.

"In this club I feel more comfortable playing as a central defender than a midfielder but I will play where I am asked," he said.
