Javier Mascherano will not leave Barcelona this summer, according to the player’s agent.
The Argentina captain moved to Spain from Liverpool last summer for around £18million, but has struggled to secure a place in the starting line-up.
Italian trio Juventus, Milan and Roma have been linked with a move for the 26-year-old, but his agent, Horacio Zandonadi, claims his client has no interest.
“Mascherano is not moving from Barcelona and there is nothing to say about him going to Italy,” Zandonadi told Italian radio station Mana Mana.
“Mascherano is playing for Barcelona, the best team in the world. What else could he ask for?
“He wouldn’t even consider his future if Juventus or AC Milan made an offer for him. As for Roma, why would they pay more than Barcelona? He is not leaving.”
