Barcelona are set to buy Argentina and Liverpool defensive midfielder Javier Mascherano. Masch was linked with joining european champions Inter, where he would reunite with his former coach Rafael Benitez, but now Barcelona also enter the “battle” for Mascherano.
Barcelona is offering Aliaksandr Hleb + 15m€ for Mascherano, but Liverpool is still considering the offer because they already have Kuyt and Joe Cole on the wings, so they dont really need A.Hleb.
Meanwhile Inter is preparing their offer for Mascherano. Since Balotelli is step away from re-uniting with his former coach Roberto Mancini at City, the money from his sell would be used to sign Mascherano. Mascherano said in public that he would love to play for a team like Inter and to re-unite with Rafa Benitez. In Inter squad there are also a lot of Argentinian players such as Javier Zanetti, Esteban Cambiasso, Walter Samuel, Diego Milito etc., so there is no doubt that Masch would feel very comfortable in Milano.
So if we look again, Inter is still in advantage.
