Barca move "a dream" for Mascherano

Javier Mascherano has described his impending move to Barcelona as a dream come true.

Mascherano arrived in the Catalan city on Saturday as he looks to put the finishing touches to his transfer from Liverpool.

The Argentina midfielder, who will reportedly cost Barca €22 million, will undergo a medical on Monday before putting pen to paper on a four-year contract with the Spanish champions.

"The truth is it's a dream," Mascherano told Barca TV. "It's a great joy and a reason to be proud for me and my family because of what it all means, for everything they've achieved in the last few years.

"As well as being a great team they are also a great group of people. Hopefully things will go well from the start.''

The 26-year-old has vowed he will adapt to life in Barcelona quickly, and will to all he can to bring success to the club.

"I'll give the same as I always have for all the teams I've played for; sacrifice, desire and I will try to do things as well as possible and help all the time," he said. "It's a great club with great players and I will try to adapt as quickly as possible."
