Mascherano wants River Plate move


Barcelona man Javier Mascherano has dealt a blow to anyone hoping that he would be making a return to Liverpool next year.

The Argentina international has been linked with a free transfer back to Anfield as he enters the final months of his contract at the Camp Nou.

But it now seems that he will instead be making a return to another of his former clubs, with River Plate his preferred destination.

The thirty-three year old has revealed that he would like to head back to the Argentine club, but is not sure when it will happen.

“I believe I need to give a chapter of my career to River Plate.” he said.

“My problem is this is not guaranteed and I could be a prisoner of my own words, if the move does not happen I may be accused of lying.

“But the truth is that this is what I have thought about, but I have a good relationship with the club’s president Rodolfo D’Onofrio and we speak regularly.

“My future has nothing to do with money, I used to make my own decisions but now they’re done by my family, I cannot forget my kids and their situation.

“What will I be doing in January or summer? I have no idea.” he finished.

Mascherano left Anfield back in the Summer of 2010, shortly after Roy Hodgson replaced Rafa Benitez as manager.
