Barcelona seal Mascherano deal

Monday, August 30, 2010

The Javier Mascherano saga is finally over. After weeks of speculation, Barcelona have finally secured the Argentine's services for a fee of around £18 million. Mascherano has been linked away from Liverpool for some time and had never hid the fact he wanted to leave.

"I am happy to have joined Barcelona.

"When the best club in the world comes after you, you can only be happy.''

Mascherano joined Liverpool from West Ham and was a fairly big success, with everyone impressed with his determination and how he gave 110% in every game. He was a great player for Liverpool, but I think they knew he was leaving when new chief Roy Hodgson signed Poulsen and Meireles, who both play in the middle of the midfield.

I think it's a good thing that Mascherano moved. If he stayed he would have had a negative affect on the team and he will do well at Barcelona, a good replacement for Yaya Toure.
