Just when you thought the Mascherano story had been put to bed, the player will be back on collision course with Rafa Benitez after his agent once again took centre-stage, attempting to get Barcelona back involved with a bid for the 25 year old Argentine.
His agent Walter Tamer, was quoted by Argentine news site Infobae.
“Barcelona is the easiest deal to set up as Javier wants to go to Spain. He is tired of life in England.
“His wife has not been given a permanent visa. She has to go through an odyssey each time she wants to go.
“Liverpool refuse to sell, but this can be overcome with an extraordinary offer.”
Mascherano is with the Liverpool squad who are shortly due to kick off in Thailand. Benitez is believed to have told Mascherano that he is going nowhere this summer.
