While 25 million euros is not a small sum of money, I think that in the current transfer market it is too low of an offer for a player like Mascherano.
SPORT newspaper says the offer will be closer to 30 million euros.
There’s no reason to believe that Liverpool will let Masche go for that amount. They would be foolish to do so.
Barca plot £25 Masch Bid
BARCELONA are set to launch a £25m raid for Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano.
The Spanish champions will bid to secure the services of the Argentina captain in the next few days, according to reports in Spain.
Mascherano has been a big hit on Merseyside since signing for the club in an £18.6million deal two seasons ago and his performances have impressed Barca boss Pep Guardiola.
With fierce rivals Real Madrid still keen on bringing Mascherano’s Reds’ teammate Xabi Alonso back to Spain, Barcelona must move quickly to sign the ex-West Ham star.
Liverpool will refuse to sell two of their key central midfielders in the same summer, so if Mascherano does move to the Nou Camp, it would rule out any possibility of Alonso joining Madrid.
