Mascherano's agent holds talks with Barcelona

Liverpool could have a fight on their hands to hold onto Javier Mascherano after reports that the Argentina midfielder's agent, Walter Tamer, held talks with representatives from Barcelona.

According to the Guardian, Tamer met with officials from Barcelona for over two hours last night at the Rey Juan Carlos hotel in the Catalan city to discuss a possible transfer to the Nou Camp. Just last week Mascherano's agent told the Spanish press that his client would be interested in a switch to Spain.

Despite Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez stating that Mascherano is not for sale at any price, the Guardian claims that the player could push for a move away from Anfield if a pay rise is not forthcoming.
