Agent: Masch dreams of Inter

13 July 2010 12:29
Midfielder Javier Mascherano's agent claims reported interest from Internazionale is a 'dream' for the Liverpool ace. The Argentina captain's future at Anfield has been the subject of much debate following a below-par last campaign for the Merseyside club and the subsequent departure of manager Rafael Benitez. Both Barcelona and reigning European champions Inter were reported to be interested in signing the defensive midfielder before the World Cup. Benitez has since been appointed by Inter and agent Walter Tamer has admitted the lure of working with the Spanish coach again would be great for Mascherano. The 26-year-old has yet to holds talks about his future with new Reds boss Roy Hodgson. "After the World Cup, he has switched off but it's clear that he is happy to be a target of top clubs in the transfer market," Tamer told Corriere dello Sport. "Last season, it was the European champions Barcelona that wanted him and this year it's Inter, the current Champions League winners. "For him to be linked to Inter has a magical taste. It's a dream. "Think about it, the strongest team in the world wants him, a team where many of Mascherano's compatriots play and a side that is guided by a coach with whom Mascherano has a personal bond."
