Liverpool Ready for £21m Swap Offer: Not Xabi this time!

Real Madrid President doesn’t take no for answer.

The Rumour

But Real Madrid are waiting in the wings for Silva (above) and also fancy midfielder Mascherano.

Real are willing to pay £18m for Mascherano and could offer ex-Manchester United defender Gabriel Heinze in the package.

The Analysis

Florentino Perez is a like the footballing equivalent of a Tornado! Sucking up every footballer in his path of destruction. Not happy with tapping up Man United for Cristiano now the Real Madrid bandwagon locates itself outside Anfield. First it was Xabi Alonso they were targeting but now it appears that Javier Mascherano is on their ever growing wish list.

Liverpool fans could breath a massive collective sigh of relief now that Gareth Barry has gone chasing the money at Man City but it appears Rafa’s midfield has been earmarked by the La Liga club trying hard to play catch up with Barcelona.

I have no doubt Benitez will tell the Spanish giants to go swivel and it’s clear that Masch loves the club and is not going to leave any time soon. However a move for Gabriel Heinze would be a decent idea maybe the Merseyside club can ask if they can swap Voronin for the Argentine full back?

The Likelihood

Mascherano to Real Madrid: Nope!
