The Chinese team are plotting their Super League assault on Spanish territory. Mascherano is one of the team's key players straight away and there is a lot of expectation on him. The Jefecito is one of the biggest name players n the league.

Mascherano wants to play in the build up to the World Cup and at Barcelona he had fallen behind Pique and Umtiti in the pecking order, with Thomas Vermaelen also playing well too.
