Calciomercato are reporting that Napoli and Barcelona have agreed a deal for Javier Mascherano to be transferred to the Azzurri.
It was reported last week that the player’s agent had flown to Spain to discuss his client’s future and it would now appear to have been resolved.
According to the report, Rafa Benitez’s side are already preparing the necessary documentation needed to conclude the deal.
Confirmation of the Argentine’s move to Italy will apparently be given once the Partenopei have mathematically qualified for next season’s Champions League.
