Mascherano in new Napoli link

Rumours continue to circulate that Javier Mascherano will reunite with Rafa Benitez in the summer and sign for Napoli.

The Argentine utility man played for the Partenopei Coach during their time at Liverpool, and has since gone on to become a mainstay in the Barca team.

But claim that with the Spanish side set for wholesale changes in the summer, the Stadio San Paolo outfit will make an offer for Mascherano during the off-season.

The Liga giants are set to sign a number of players before the start of next season, and with centre-back a high priority position, the Argentina international could be allowed to leave.

It is, however, unclear, what sort of offer Napoli would have to table in order to get their man.
