Mascherano has revealed he's received offers.
"You never know," he told El Pais. "In football, you have to be prepared for anything. There were calls from somewhere else, but no offers.
"There are always doubts. You are at Barcelona and you have to fight for your place. The question is whether you now fight in the same circumstances, as I have always had to win my starting place throughout my career. It's as it should be.
"If Barca tell me they don't need me, I will be off within a minute."
