Liverpool coach Mauricio Pellegrino has failed to rule out the possibility of Javier Mascherano leaving Anfield. The Argentina midfielder is said to be a target of Barcelona and it is claimed his agent, Walter Tamer, met with officials of the Spanish club on Wednesday. Reds manager Rafa Benitez is adamant that Mascherano will not depart the side as he sees the 25-year-old as a vital component of his squad. However, Pellegrino concedes 'anything is possible' in football, as Barca and also Real Madrid continue to be linked with an offer for Mascherano's services. "Every time negotiations are underway, money always makes the decision," Pellegrino told "Anyway, Mascherano is such an important player for us, like other ones can be for Barca. "I do not want to say anything about it because we already know that in football's world, nothing is impossible."
