Mascherano is not for sale

Asked about the rumours linking Liverpool defensive midfielder and Argentine international Javier Mascherano (24) with a move to Barcelona (read more here), Liverpool manager Rafael Benítez dismissed the specualtion in an interview with the club's official website:

"Mascherano has no price. Barcelona could not afford to match his value to Liverpool Football Club. We do not want to sell and Javier is very happy here.

I have spoken to Javier two or three times this summer – the last time was only last week – and he was very happy, very positive. He gave me the private number of his agent, Walter Tamer, and again the conversation was very positive and was all about football.

Walter told me that two clubs with big, big names were asking after Mascherano – and I told him to forget it, that Javier was happy in Liverpool and he was not for sale. So I was surprised to see the agent's comments today. He has a long contract and any club can forget about bidding for him. They can offer £40m or even £50m, we don't want to sell."

true, only Kaka until now, I don't know, but it seems that even Hleb is not going too, but we are still in the beginning of the transfer window.
and the news about eto'o going to milan and stuff is not believable really, but if he is sold to either Manchester city, Chelsea or Inter Milan then we will have enough money to get Villa who is estimated at £50m. maybe Zhirkov too. I'd go for Robinho too if I had any chance. he can score 20 goals and make 15 assists, and dribbles as a magician. a left flank with Zhirkov/Robinho coupled with a right flank of you-know-who !!!! !!! while Xavi & Iniesta roams freely in the middle !!!! wow !!!! even I can score 40 goals as a striker between all those dribbles and assists.

Very little movement on the market so far, while we're already approaching mid-June. The EPL top clubs still didn't start shopping either. What are they all waiting for? Maybe everything will start now Madrid has pumped the first 70 million in the market.

Milan said they wont let Kaka go even after the deal was signed behind closed deals i guess. so nothing is lost. i guess many of the deals are waiting to be announced officially. like Ronaldo to Madrid.

groga is as dumb as my dumb ass donkey.fuck you n fuck both peps.and pep,,i think u r crazy bcoz u created this pathetic blog..

PLNTERTH said...

^^^Is there someway to block this piece of shit? R10FCB do you think you are funny or cool or something? You are the one who is pathetic, both Peps have created things that many many people across the world appreciate. Are you bitter that nobody appreciates you because you are a worthless asshole? The answer is yes, now go put a loaded gun to your head and pull the trigger. Seriously, its really time you face up to the fact that you are a shitty excuse for a human being, stop burdening the world with your existence.

I really like how Macherano plays, no doubt he is one of the best DM in the world. But I believe is the perfect DM for Barca's system.

But i would like to see Javier at barcelona.

anybody else would like to see this:

-----Busquets----
----Xavi---Yaya--

We might see some amazing stuff from Yaya in a more advanced role. Iniesta on Henry's position like he did many times this year and played great (as usual). Do you think it can be incredible with Yaya's technique, shooting and strength in that role (similar to Gerrard for example)?

NouBarca said...

I doubt that was the real R10FCB, hes one of us and I think hes way better than that. Some idle minds have been using our names wrongly

praths4barca said...

I know who this idiot R10FCB is ! I can easily make out from the way he has written. Is any one with me on this detective work ?? he has posted in other threads as a legitimate guy and he is a traitor.

Iason said...

Well aren't you smart. It's a different R10FCB.

TengkuAmir10 said...

ya i agree with u too praths n lason .i remember r10fcb being quite smarter than this n has alwways appreciated the two peps who we all hail as kings(not really though).he also said in a lot of other threads saying this kind of stupid stuff n i think last time r10fcb said dat this was not him.poor guy

VISCA EL BARCA

poor peps too.FAKE R10FCB is RETARD guy

Toure plays in advanced position on international level, and in previous clubs too, if you watch his videos in France you will see him scoring many goals and taking many shots on goal, but he has been used only as a defensive player here. not surprisingly though, watching Belletti playing as an attacking midfield for Chelsea, while for us he was nothing more than a full-back.

hey pep could you mail me, i will tell u who guy mite be based on his writings ?
