Javier Mascherano Could Join Inter Milan, Indicates Agent Walter Tamer

Everybody knows that Argentina captain Javier Mascherano has been linked with both Inter Milan and Barcelona. The Liverpool midfielder also earlier indicated that he could move away from Anfield this summer. Now, his agent Walter Tamer has claimed that Inter Milan could be his client’s most likely next destination.

Javier Mascherano has recently suffered an early exit from the World Cup following Argentina’s defeat to Germany in the quarter final. His client has also revealed that Mascherano is yet to talk to the new Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson.

Javier Mascherano said to the media, "Mascherano has not spoken to Hodgson nor with Liverpool. After the World Cup, he has switched off but it's clear he is happy to be a target of top clubs in the transfer market.

Last season, it was the European champions Barcelona that wanted him and this year it's Inter, the current Champions League winners.

For him to be linked to Inter has a magical taste — it's a dream.”

Inter Milan manager Rafael Benitez is highly interested to reunite with his former player at Milan. Even few days back Barcelona was in pole position to secure the player’s service, but the Catalan side now seems to be less interested mainly because of Liverpool’s pretty high asking price.

Barcelona already has a top class holding midfielder in Sergio Busquets. So, it is less likely that they would like to add another high quality holding midfielder splashing a huge amount. So, Inter Milan now seems to be ahead in the race of signing Mascherano.

Javier Mascherano was brought at Liverpool in 2007 from West Ham United when Benitez was at the helm of Liverpool. It is believed that the player has a very good personal relationship with the Spaniard.
