Barcelona are set to offer Liverpool a player plus cash deal for Javier Mascherano involving former Arsenal midfielder Aleksander Hleb.

Sources in Mascherano’s home country of Argentina are claiming that a deal is all wrapped up and set to be completed. Newspaper Ole says Mascherano will make the switch for just £12m plus Hleb, who was sent out on loan to Stuttgart last season.

Despite these claims, other sources are insistent that no deal is done as Roy Hodgson would like Brazilian left-back Maxwell added to the deal – which is a sticking point for Barcelona.

Rafa Benitez is also lurking in the background watching develops closely from Milan. He is desperate to bring his trusted former midfielder to the San Siro and is hoping money from Mario Balotelli’s move to Manchester City will make a deal possible before Barcelona seal the swoop.
