Mascherano set for Anfield exit

Javier Mascherano has been left out of the Liverpool squad to face Manchester City tonight following reports that he is set to join Barcelona.

The La Liga champions are reported to have offered £12m and former Arsenal winger Alexander Hleb in exchange for the Argentina captain.

Mascherano has been linked with a move away from Anfield throughout the summer with his wife reported to be unhappy with life in England.

Inter Milan had appeared favourites to sign the 26-year-old, however, it now seems that the hard-tackling midfielder will be moving to the Camp Nou.
