The appointment of Luis Enrique has changed the situation, says Brovarone.
â€śLuis Enrique has put everything back up for discussion,â€ť he said. â€śHis contract is not lavish, he earns â‚¬3.2m a season.
â€śThe two parties [Barca and Mascherano] are talking. Because of what Enrique wants, discussions have reopened. Some things still need to be resolved and when there are figures involved there is always a risk.
â€śBarcelona are obliged to prolong his contract but the player doesnâ€™t seem to agree, so the situation could go on for a while.
â€śMascheranoâ€™s goodbye was certain before Luis Enriqueâ€™s arrival. Then, discussion reopened on a subject that was already closed.
â€śTamer went to Barcelona to find out what is going on and today, he remains there.â€ť
