Diego Milito is expecting Javier Mascherano to join him at Inter Milan. Milito is expecting his compatriot to leave Liverpool and sign for Inter, especially after Rafael Benitez joined the Italian champions. "I think it’s unrealistic of Liverpool to think they can keep hold of Mascherano when they can't even offer Champions League football and are not challenging Manchester United and Chelsea for the Premier League title," said the Argentinian international. "The boss and Mascherano have a good friendship so there were no other clubs on the cards for him after that, including Barcelona. "He has wanted to join for a while but when the boss joined Inter I think that sealed the deal. "We are very excited about Mascherano joining us."
