Mascherano: “I’m learning Italian, I don’t know what i will do after the World Cup”
By Football Talk.
The future of Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano has been thrown into further doubt after reports are circulating that Inter officials will meet Liverpool on Tuesday to discuss a potential deal, while the player himself has intensified rumours he’s set to follow Rafa Benitez to Italy by admitting he is learning Italian.
Mascherano’s future has been questioned this summer following a disappointing season on Merseyside, with the likes of Barcelona thought to be considering a move. But according to Sky Sport 24, Inter director Marco Branca will meet with members of the Liverpool board on Tuesday to discuss signing the Argentina captain. It us thought a fee in the region of £20-£25m would be enough to persuade Liverpool into selling one of their prized assets. Branca will also hold talks with Mascherano’s agent to see if the defensive midfielder would be keen on following his ex-manager to the San Siro.
However, if Mascherano’s latest comments are anything to go by then he may have already made up his mind. Whilst on international duty with Argentina at the World Cup, Mascherano revealed he is learning to speak Italian, while also admitting he doesn’t know where his future lies.
“I am learning Italian while I’m here in South Africa,” he said. “I don’t know what I will do after the tournament. We shall see.”
